Got a place in the London Marathon? Here are six reasons to run for RoSPA!


We would love it if you helped to support RoSPA’s mission to “save lives and reduce injuries” by running for us!

By now, runners around the world are finding out whether or not they have won a place in next year’s London Marathon. If you’re one of these lucky people, and don’t yet have a cause, we would love it if you ran for RoSPA! Here are six reasons why:


  1. Kill 14,000 people each year across the UK
  2. Seriously injure more than 700,000 per year in England alone
  3. Are the major cause of death up to the age of 39 and the leading cause of preventable, early death for most of our lives
  4. Are the main cause of death for children after infancy
  5. Are often violent and always untimely
  6. Destroy families and diminish communities.

Your support can save lives and prevent injuries. So why not give our fundraising team a call on 0121 248 2507 or email
