Team Children of Peru participants are encouraged to set their own fundraising goals. We require that charity participants raise as least $6,000, but why stop there? Every dollar you raise for the Children of Peru Foundation helps us fund our different programs for poor kids in Peru.
We will use the dollars you raised to make a difference for poor children in Peru. And this year we are offering a flight ticket to Peru to the runner who will raise the most money for our projects!!
Please note that the Virgin London Marathon requires athletes gaining entry via charity partners to meet fund raising commitments. Applicants are required to provide credit card information as a guarantee. Failure to comply will result in entry cancellation.
“Can I join if I already have my entry to the Virgin London Marathon?”

Why Run for the Children of Peru Foundation?
Since its creation, the Children of Peru Foundation has been working with several groups, association and NGOs to help poor children in Peru in the areas of health and education. We have built schools, we sponsor a school for special needs children, we are sending surgeons every year to provide free surgeries to children in need and we want to do much more.
Whether you finish in record time or just cross the finish line, your participation will have made a difference in the lives of hundreds of Peruvian children and their families.
