Preventing Homelessness in Reading

Green Park Royal Berks 10K

We’re the official Charity Partner of the Green Park Royal Berkshire 10K in 2017. Are you interested in taking part or helping marshall the event?

Green Park Royal Berkshire 10K, Sunday 21 May 2017

We are lucky enough to be the official charity partner of the Green Park Royal Berkshire Reading 10K and have 20 places to fill. We’re asking you to raise a minimum of just £75.

We’ll also need a team of 20 race marshalls – it’s a great way to be involved without having to run!

The Green Park Reading 10K is a flat, closed road loop route, offering new runners an easy introduction into a running event. It also has excellent PB potential for experienced runners looking to produce a fast time.

If you’d like to run or marshall and support Launchpad, email Sophie Adele Stokes or telephone 0118 929 1121.


Reading Half Marathon, Sunday 19 March 2017

The Reading Half Marathon is the town’s biggest athletic event, and it’s also an excellent fundraising opportunity. Every year we’re lucky enough to have supporters who choose to run and fundraise for Launchpad.

This year we had 14 runners running and fundraising for Launchpad including Amanda, Anna and Colin from Xactly, Peter and Richard from Century Link, Naomi, Jonathan, Nick and Celine the Ewe Move/Nibsy’s Team, plus Piers, James and Sauruv. Collectively they raised over £2,000!

Adam was one of our runners in 2016 and he raised over £1,000. Read about his brush with homelessness and why he chose to support Launchpad here.
