Would you like to get involved in one of our biggest fundraising events? Join us as a Cheer Point Volunteer, to support our brilliant runners as they take on the London Marathon.

We pride ourselves on having the loudest cheer points and giving our runners a day they won’t forget. So, if this sounds like the role for you, we’d love to have you on board.

The London Marathon is on Sunday 23 April in Central London.

Your start time, finish time and cheer point will be sent nearer the time - we’ll ask what works for you when you sign up. On the day, you’ll be joined by fellow volunteers and our friendly Events team, who’ll be cheering from 8am till 7pm.

Interested in joining us?

Sign up today, and help us make the day a success.

What's a Cheer Point Volunteer?

You'll cheer, clap and wave as the runners come past our cheer points. You'll be joined by Breast Cancer Now Events staff who'll be there to support you.

You'll be given your volunteer T-shirt and some light snacks for the day, and it's up to you how long you join us - we'll ask you when you sign up.

It really is special cheering on supporters as they run past and seeing how much they appreciate it! They definitely deserve it after all their amazing fundraising efforts. I would volunteer for Breast Cancer Now again in a heartbeat.
