London Marathon 2019 Team Step by Step

  • 7 November 2018

Were you lucky enough to get a place in the London Marathon 2019 ballot? If you were, we'd love you to join Team Step by Step and run for us.

We have a dedicated fundraising team to help you get the most out of your efforts and raise funds to help us support young people facing hard times. For each mile you run we'll go the extra mile to make sure your support is used in the best possible way to support young people in the south east.

Young people like Billy.

When Billy* , a 12 year old Year 7 pupil was referred to Step by Step's Future Steps, he was refusing to attend several subjects at school. He was considered as defiant and non-compliant towards school staff which also caused problems at home. During Future Steps sessions we focused on talking through his worries and building his self-esteem and confidence to ask for help. Working in partnership with the school we introduced strategies to help address the issues successfully which meant he was able to attend classes and so our sessions focused more on his main passion, his love of running.

Brad, Billy's Talent Coach said of Billy 'With newly purchased running trainers, a new chapter began for this now happily settled Year 8 pupil that runs for his club every week…his next goal is a small one, running for English Schools!”

Set your goal high and raise funds for Step by Step. You'll be helping us to keep working with young people like Billy to find their passions and succeed in life.
