Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity 

Our mission at Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity is to enhance Great Ormond Street Hospital’s (GOSH) ability to transform the health and wellbeing of children and young people, giving them the best chance to fulfil their potential.

Every day, 618 children and young people from across the UK arrive at GOSH. Every day, doctors and nurses battle the most complex illnesses, and the brightest minds come together to achieve pioneering medical breakthroughs. And every day is a chance for you to make a difference. This extraordinary hospital has always depended on charitable support to give seriously ill children the best chance to fulfil their potential. A better future for seriously ill children starts here.

The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew Charity     

Around 25% of Kew’s income is from generous individuals, trusts, and other philanthropy. Our two beautiful and historic sites are among the world’s most-loved public gardens. Places where plants are cherished and celebrated – and where future generations come to learn.

Kew is finding plant-based solutions to global challenges such as biodiversity loss, food security, poverty, disease and changing climate. Our scientists are discovering new ways of using plants for the benefit of people, while working hard to conserve and restore the world's habitats, particularly those most in danger.

Contact the fundraising team if you want to take up the challenge to help save the world’s plants while running in our beautiful Gardens.
