EVENT: Run for LOOK in the London Virtual Marathon, Sunday, 3rd of October

Run or walk the Virtual London Marathon for LOOK this October!

Is every day beginning to feel like GROUNDHOG DAY?!

Feel like you need a challenge?

How about running (or walking) the Virtual London Marathon for LOOK!

Taking place on October 3rd, you can run the 26.2 miles from anywhere you choose – this is YOUR RUN! Take part in the London Marathon – Your Way!

This year, our aim is for our amazing runners to each raise enough money to sponsor a Visually Imapired young adult to become a LOOK mentor. 

LOOK’s tailored peer-mentoring service connects VI young people with a trained VI mentor to offer advice, support and guidance on subjects such as school, further & Higher Education, careers, opportunities and independent living, based on the mentor’s own experiences.This costs £250 and has a life-changing impact on our mentors, the young mentees that they work with and family members.

“Our daughter says she loves having a mentor, because they are able to empathise with each other over a variety of different topics. The Youth Forums (run by the mentors) have been brilliant for some social interaction during lockdown, as, for many VI children, friendships are a difficult area to sustain at mainstream school and they often feel very isolated.”
