You will receive an official London Marathon pack from TCS, however, our team will also provide a Rowans Hospice Charity running vest and many more fundraising resources to help you achieve your fundraising goal!

Join our team and Run for Rowans…

Register below to let us know you will be supporting Rowans Hospice Charity, by participating in the biggest marathon ever staged, anywhere in the world!

The Charity has cared for many more people since the start of the pandemic, especially for those living in their own homes who wish to remain in their own ‘safe space’ and closer to family members and friends.  We are asking our Rowans Runners to pledge to raise £750 in sponsorship money to help support Rowans Hospice Charity on its road to recovery after the devastating financial losses caused by the pandemic.

Thank you for continued support.

Go the extra mile with Corporate Support!

There are a few ways in which your employer can support your amazing fundraising efforts when you take on the TCS London Marathon and Run for Rowans. Here are some top tips to try!

  • Match funding is a great way to enhance your fundraising. For every £1 you raise, your employer donates £1. Double the donation and double the impact! Why not ask your employer to see if they will be able to help you reach your fundraising goals?
  • Make sure to share your fundraising page with fellow employees. Your page could also be featured in the company newsletter or intranet explaining why you are Running for Rowans!
  • If you have a reception desk, pop a collection tin on the desk. Your clients would love to know that your business supports their local community and hospice care.
  • Alternatively, could your employer support you by covering your London Marathon entry ballot fee so that every penny raised supports local Hospice care?​
Setting up your fundraising page

The quickest and easiest way to collect sponsorship is by setting up a personal online fundraising page with JustGiving. JustGiving will send your sponsorship money to us automatically so all you need to do is share your page with friends and family so you can begin receiving donations for Rowans Hospice Charity.
