The Craft Half is back in Wimbledon for the 3rd time. This fantastic regional fundraising 10K and half marathon event is organised by the charity Street Child .
Street Child gives children in the world’s toughest places the chance to go to school and learn. This Craft Half they want to raise £15,000 which is enough to support 500 children in school for a year. Help them smash this target by setting up and sharing your fundraising page, putting on a bake sale or donating to support!
The Craft Half is run with a twist, combining a love of running with a love of beer as runners enjoy samples of local craft beer at fuelling stations every two miles along the course. The fun continues at our event village with our ‘Halfter Party’, featuring excellent local food, pop-up bars from their craft beer partners, live music and a chance to celebrate!
Where: 12 Friars Avenue, Wimbledon Common, Wimbledon, SW15 3DU
About Street Child
Who We Are
We are Street Child. We believe every child deserves the chance to go to school and learn. Currently, 125 million school-aged children are out of education world-wide. Millions more children are in school but failing to learn. Street Child believes that achieving universal basic education is the single greatest step that can be taken towards the elimination of global poverty.
What We Do
We recognise that the barriers to education are complex and interlinked, and our projects focus on a combination of education, child protection and livelihood support to address the social, economic and structural issues that underpin today’s education crisis. Wherever we work, we partner with local organisations and communities and take an outcome-led approach.
We use evidence to drive learning and the constant refinement and scale-up of programmes that create maximum impact for the most children at the lowest cost.
Where We Work
Street Child prides itself on being willing to go to the world’s toughest places where others won’t, including remote, hard-to-reach areas and fragile, disaster-affected states. We are currently based in ten countries: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Liberia, Nepal, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Sri Lanka and Uganda.
Our focus is on low-cost sustainable solutions that make a real difference to the children we support. Since 2008, we have helped over 250,000 children to go to school and learn and supported over 25,000 families to set up businesses so they can afford the cost of educating their children long-term.
