Make A Wish UK - Cheerer

Details of the Charity:

Make-A-Wish UK creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. A wish gives a desperately ill child and their family time away from their daily struggles of living with a serious condition. Since 1986, Make-A-Wish has turned the wishes of more than 13,000 seriously ill children into magical realities - creating memories to treasure forever, whatever their future may hold.

Details of the Volunteering Opportunity:

Royal Parks Half-Marathon,  Hyde Park, London (exact location tbc but approx. W2 2UH) Sunday 13 October from 9.30am- 1pm

On the day of the event you’ll be at one of our cheering points cheering the #wishheroes as loud as possible. Your role is to make as much positive noise as possible and make the Make-A-Wish cheering spot visible.

Those who take on a challenge help us to grant more wishes and you’re the one to encourage them in their journey.

By cheering them on the day of the event, you’ll make sure that they feel valued and supported in what they do.
