Team Passage takes on the TCS London Marathon 2024

With its vibrant atmosphere and electric community spirit, the TCS London Marathon captivates our city every year. This year will see the largest group of runners to take part in support of The Passage we have ever had! So, to celebrate we wanted to spotlight three of our incredible runners.

Please read their inspiring stories below, to find out why they decided to take on this challenge on behalf of Team Passage.

Niamh

“I decided to sign up to run the London Marathon for The Passage back in 2022 after my brother, Greg, passed away from bowel cancer at the age of 28. Greg volunteered at the Passage while studying for his PhD at Imperial. I wanted to find a way to keep my brother’s connection to the Passage alive and raise funds for the charity that meant so much to my brother.”

“I have enjoyed the challenge of training and fundraising, it’s been something to focus on and work towards. I have had very generous family and friends who have donated but also shared my story wider so other people have been able to donate. It makes me overjoyed that people want to support me, but also Greg’s legacy

“I’m looking forward to having my family and friends there to support me. It will be a very emotional and humbling event. I’m really grateful to the Passage for giving me the chance to run the marathon for them and in memory of my brother.”

Patrick

Our frontline staff work at the heart of the housing emergency, supporting every individual who comes through our doors.

So, it’s an extra-special feeling when someone who already dedicates so much time and commitment to ending homelessness, chooses to continue that commitment into everyday life!

When Patrick, our Montfort House Project Worker, signed up to take part in the London Marathon on behalf of Team Passage, we were so grateful for his support.

He is taking part with the full support of the residents of Montfort House, who will be cheering him on every step of the way.

Clare

It’s impossible to ignore the rising levels of homelessness in London. Each day, we see more and more people coming to The Passage in need of support…

“It’s been a great experience, raising awareness for the work Team Passage does every day. It has sparked so many important conversations, causing people to pause and reflect on the impact they can have on this important issue.”

As the marathon approaches, Clare tells us how she cannot wait to experience the atmosphere of one of the world’s most celebrated marathons.
