The London Marathon is one of the most popular in the world and After Adoption has guaranteed places. We ask our runners to raise at least £2,000. It's expensive for us to buy these places and we have to make it worthwhile.
£2,000 might sound daunting, but we suggest not relying on sponsorship. Raise £500 through sponsorship and organise three smaller events that raise £500 each and it starts to look feasible.
If you are successfully given an After Adoption place, we will ask you to make a £250 personal contribution immediately to show your commitment. This is in addition to the fundraising target.

When & Where
After Adoption finds adoptive families for those children who wait the longest in care - particularly those who are older, need to be placed with their brothers and sisters, or have a disability.
We then support those families as long as they need us, to help make those adoptions last.
We also provide support to adults adopted as children, and birth relatives of those adopted. We support all those whose lives have been affected by adoption.
