How your fundraising helps

Shout is the only free, confidential, 24/7 text messaging support service for anyone in the UK struggling to cope. Every 60 seconds, someone reaches out to us in distress.

By running the Manchester Marathon and raising £400 for Shout, you could help us to support 40 children, young people and adults in their moment of crisis.

That support could be life-saving.
