Charity Partners

We encourage all charities to get involved with the Reading Half Marathon and Green Park Challenge. Whether you are a local or national charity, being part of this event will give your charity fantastic exposure whilst encouraging our runners to raise thousands of pounds for your great cause.

Our objective is to transform the amount raised through these events for our Charity Partners. There are six levels of Charity Partnerships available, designed to suit all charities, big or small. If you are interested in being an official Charity Partner please email: info@goldlineevents.co.uk

Platinum Partner

Sue Ryder supports people through the most difficult times of their lives. Whether that's a terminal illness, the loss of a loved one or neurological condition - we're there when it matters.

For over 65 years, our doctors, nurses and carers have given people the compassion and expert care they need to help them live the best life they possibly can. We take the time to understand what's important to people and give them the choice and control over their care. For some this may mean specialist care in one of our centres, whilst others might need support in their own home.

LOCAL PARTNER

We're a Christian-led charity helping children, many orphaned as a result of AIDS, and their guardians in the Domboshowa and Mutare regions of Zimbabwe.

Two generations of the Matondo family, Beverley Matondo (Founder, CBF Zimbabwe) and her daughter, Dorothy Dix (Founder & CEO, CBF UK) benefited hugely when Dorothy's education was paid for by a Rotarian sponsor.

Our aim is to ensure other children have access to education and the opportunity to improve their own futures.
