Participants invited to fundraise for Ukraine at the 2022 Vitality London 10,000
Runners are invited to ‘Run for Ukraine’ and fundraise for the Ukraine humanitarian relief appeal at the Vitality London 10,000 on Bank Holiday Monday 2 May.
A dedicated Run for Ukraine wave has been created and 100 per cent of the discounted £15 entry fee for the participants in this wave will be donated by organisers London Marathon Events to the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.
Participants in the Run for Ukraine wave will be encouraged to fundraise for the DEC collective of the UK’s 15 leading aid charities (or for the Ukrainian relief charity of their choice) and to wear blue and yellow on the day. The bib numbers for the Run for Ukraine wave will also be blue and yellow.
Join the Run for Ukraine wave
Hugh Brasher, Event Director of London Marathon Events, said: “The Run for Ukraine wave at the Vitality London 10,000 on Monday 2 May is the first of a number of initiatives that we will provide at our events for participants to fundraise to support humanitarian relief work in Ukraine.
“We know that so many people want to help and you will be helping by just entering the Run for Ukraine wave. We invite the running community to Run for Ukraine together, raise funds together, wear blue and yellow together and help to make a difference to the Ukraine relief effort.”
