2020 Charity of the Year
Virgin Money invites applications for 2020 London Marathon Charity of the Year
To celebrate the 40th London Marathon and its 10th year of sponsorship, Virgin Money is inviting charities to apply to be the official charity of the 2020 Virgin Money London Marathon.
Chris Brasher and John Disley, who created the event, originally aimed for it to use sport to transform people’s lives for the better. To honour the race founders, Virgin Money and London Marathon Events want to find a charity that has, or is looking to launch, a project or programme that encourages, supports and develops people’s engagement in sport, or which uses sport to make a difference in the world and where being the Virgin Money London Marathon Charity of the Year will make all the difference.
As well as being named the official charity of the 2020 Virgin Money London Marathon, the chosen charity will also be Virgin Money’s corporate charity for 2019-20.
Interested charities should email email@example.com for an entry form.
More than £890m has been raised for charity through the event since it was first held in 1981 and this year’s event raised an incredible £61.5m, breaking the world record for a single day annual fundraising event for the eleventh successive year.
