Join our Mini Marathon

To celebrate our charity ballot place in the 2021 London Marathon we are organising a virtual ‘mini marathon’ to raise money for The Centre and we would love you and your family to get involved!

Choose whether to walk, run or toddle 1, 5 or 10 miles and complete your distance (in one go or over several days) between the 25th July and 1st August.

Registration is £5 per individual and £7 per family and we have suggested a sponsorship target of £50 (although any money you are able to raise, however big or small, is hugely valued and makes a big difference).

To get involved, all you have to do is…

Register with us

Please drop our fundraising team a message fundraising@ccsadoption.org

You will be sent a short registration form to complete and return.

Collect sponsorship

You can pay your registration fee when setting up your fundraising page on Virgin Money Giving. All you have to do is:

  • Visit the event page on Virgin Money Giving: https://bit.ly/CCS_MiniM_sponsorship
  • Click on the ‘start fundraising’ button and follow the instructions to set up your fundraising page (if you need any images or text for this please let us know)
  • Pay your registration fee when prompted to do so

Once you have set up your sponsorship page you can encourage friends and family to support by sharing it via email and social media. And, if you would be happy to share details of the event with others (the more the merrier), here is the event poster for you to download, print and share.

Plan your walk/run

You can do your activity wherever you like (in your own home or garden, up a mountain, anywhere) we just ask that you follow current government guidelines on safety/social distancing.

To plan and track your route you can either use a map (or equivalent) or use a free fitness tracking app such as Strava or Map my fitness.

Join the Facebook event page

To make it feel more like an event, or certainly more like the events we would normally organise (sadly the pandemic has ruled out a lot of our usual fundraising activities), we have created a Facebook event page: https://bit.ly/CCSminimarathon.

Here we will be posting regular updates in the weeks leading up to the event and daily activities (e.g. warm ups, activities for children to do as they walk etc.) through that week, so please join!

Contact details

For more information and to register please contact fundraising@ccsadoption.org or call 0117 935 0005
