Tree of Hope’s Mission

Tree of Hope is a UK charity dedicated to ensuring every child and young person has equal access to essential healthcare, enabling them to lead fulfilling lives and reach their full potential.

Why Choose Our Charity?

By running for Tree of Hope, you are not only participating in one of the world’s most iconic marathons but also making a tangible impact. Your support helps us to help families like Caiden and Reece’s:

“Tree of Hope have been so supportive in my fundraising efforts for my twin sons who have cerebral palsy. They are always on hand to help with PR, Marketing and to discuss ideas with. Working with them opened up more opportunities in working with companies to ask for donations and support. They also secured the boys a grant which absolutely blew me away! I cannot recommend them enough to help you with your fundraising journey.”

Tree of Hope’s CEO Becky Andrew comments, saying:

“Tree of Hope has supported thousands of families throughout its history, yet countless others still need our help, particularly in today’s climate where the healthcare funding gap continues to widen.
