The Big Half: A Running Success!

On the 4th of March, Team Hope for the Young participated in The Big Half, an exciting half marathon winding its way through the streets of East London! We knew our determined runners would cross the finish line still smiling having participated in this unique race highlighting the diversity and spirit of the city. We want to say CONGRATULATIONS to them and THANK YOU to all those who have supported them to complete The Big Half. They couldn’t have done it without your support!

In total, we raised nearly £2,500 which will be used to support the running (pun intended) of our projects across the board! Each step taken and every pound raised will go on to combat the challenges that young refugees and asylum seekers face in receiving the education and support needed to succeed.  

While the 2018 Big Half may be over, you can continue to support Hope for the Young by submitting a DONATION through our website. You will be helping more vulnerable young people get the support they need to achieve their dreams.
