Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to having you on #TeamSallyArmy in the future!

Every mile you cover and mountain you climb, you will literally transform lives.

Our London Marathon team for 2020 is now full. If you have your own place and would like to fundraise for The Salvation Army with no minimum sponsorship commitment please click here.

Funds raised through your incredible efforts will go towards helping homeless people or any Salvation Army project close to your heart. People can be homeless for many different reasons – and so often, it’s our services they turn to for help and support. We give them, not just shelter, but the support they need to rebuild their lives. The Salvation Army is committed to helping vulnerable people everywhere, and empowering those in need to rebuild their lives. Together we can help transform lives!
