Save the Children is Official Charity Partner for Schools Half Marathon.
As a collaborative revolution for movement and change, Schools Running Movement is all about getting kids outside and active and enjoying the benefits of regular exercise. By taking part in the Schools Half Marathon, pupils run 12 miles at school over the course of a term of half term, before running the final 1.1 miles on an organised event day in front of teachers, family and friends.
Our partnership over the next two years together focuses on Save the Children's work helping to give children brighter futures in the UK and around the world. Save the Children stands side by side with children in the toughest places to be a child. We do whatever it takes to make sure they survive, get protection when they're in danger, and have the chance to learn.
When children have experienced trauma through war and conflict, participating in sport is often their first step towards rebuilding their lives, re-entering the education facilities we provide, and gives them the chance to play, and be children again.
