It's our mission to make sure you line up at the start not only looking great in your Santa Suit, but feeling fantastic after raising lots of money to help give children across the world the gift of growing up! Our team will be on hand to support you in your fundraising every step of the way.
Once you sign up, you will also get a personal fundraising page to share with friends and family. The minimum fundraising target is £100, which will help give children with cancer the gift of growing up this Christmas.
All donations made to your fundraising page before 21st January 2020 will be DOUBLED by the UK government as part of our UK Aid Match appeal to Close the Cancer Gap for children in Nepal.
Your £100 fundraising could be doubled to £200 which can pay for the accurate diagnosis of 10 children just like Prapti, who is currently being treated for cancer in Bangladesh. Watch her story here:
Santa in the City starts on the north side of the Millennium Bridge.You will begin by running over the Thames and enjoying the world famous views of Tower Bridge and the Shard. The route then takes you along the historic south embankment, past the Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, some of London's oldest pubs, like the Anchor and past Borough Market. You will cross over Southwark Bridge and hug the north embankment running towards the Tower of London and Tower Bridge. You will then return through the City, back over Southwark Bridge and towards St Paul's Cathedral, via Millennium Bridge to the finish line on St Peter’s Hill, completing a truly iconic route!
The government's matched funds will be used to support children with cancer in Nepal whilst public donations will go towards supporting families our other programmes in low-and middle-income countries around the world.
