London Marathon runner Tom

It’s a pleasure to be able to represent The Donkey Sanctuary and I couldn’t think of a cause that I’d rather support. I’ve had a lifelong affinity for the animals, which has only been strengthened by witnessing first hand the suffering they have had to endure in countries such as Iraq, Afghanistan and Kenya. Thank you and all of your team at the Sanctuary for all that you do, it is greatly appreciated.

Warren's London marathon challenge

This journey started with a half marathon last October, and will end with the full one on the world-famous London course. I have to say it’s been absolutely awesome!

The fundraising target of £1,000 initially made me worry and it certainly made my mum worry! However, the generosity of so many people has made fundraising so much fun for me- all I’ve had to worry about, since I started fundraising in December, was my training, which has been going very well.

Cori's marathon fundraising fun

Hello! My name is Cori and I'm a happily married mom of three little girls residing in Colorado, USA. I'm thrilled to be traveling to England next April to participate in my first marathon - The Virgin Money London Marathon - just shortly after my 44th birthday. I'll be running on behalf of the sponsorship and fundraising I am doing for The Donkey Sanctuary.

A tough challenge

I’m Marta. Originally from Barcelona, I’ve swapped the balmy Spanish climate this year and am training with Roger to run The London Marathon for The Donkey Sanctuary next year!

From Afghanistan to Leicester...

Hi, my name is Wayne and I've decided to raise money for The Donkey Sanctuary by running the Leicester marathon this Sunday.

I chose The Donkey Sanctuary because donkeys are one of the few remaining working animals around today and I've seen first hand the mistreatment they can receive during my tour in Afghanistan with the RAF Regiment.

I hope to not only raise money to help care for abused donkeys, but also raise awareness of the chairties that are available for anyone who would like to contribute.
