Did you know that, on average, it can cost three times more to raise a disabled child than a non-disabled child? Family Fund is the UK’s leading charity for supporting families on low incomes raising disabled and seriously ill children.

We believe all children deserve the chance to play, learn, achieve and succeed. Our mission is to provide items and services to all families on low incomes raising disabled or seriously ill children, which they could not otherwise afford or access, to help improve their quality of life, realise their rights, and remove some of the barriers they face.

As well as making a real difference to the lives of disabled and seriously ill children as you run, you’ll receive;
  • A support pack with fundraising tips and resources
  • A free running vest to wear on race day
  • Dedicated support from our team to help you reach your fundraising target, sending you extra materials and help right up to the big day!


We're here to ensure you have the best running experience possible, starting right now! Please email our Fundraising team [email protected] if you would like to be part of #TeamFamilyFund!
