FUNDRAISING

#247RUNNING is an online community of people brought together by a shared love - running!

Knowing the benefits that running can bring for physical and mental well-being, we would like to help more people get into this amazing sport.

Over the coming months / years we plan to support multiple charities - our first being 'The Running Charity' who use running to improve the lives of 16-25 year-olds who are homeless or at risk of homelessness across the UK.

Supporters

"We really enjoyed supporting #247RUNNING and their Twitter fundraising initiative for The Running Charity.  Caroline was very efficient and the whole process was clear and easy to follow.  We had an excellent response to our tweets throughout the week, and the competition that we ran.  We have seen our Twitter audience grow as a result (and it was quite nice for us to have someone take over our Twitter campaign for a while!).  We would very happily work with Caroline and #247RUNNING in the future." - Hilary, The Medal Hanger Shop
