Jesuit Missions fields a team of runners in the London Marathon every year; we are currently recruiting for next year’s Marathon, which will be held in April 2018. If you are eager to tick an item off your bucket list and raise money for a very worthwhile cause, then get involved and apply for a place on our team today!
Taking it that extra mile with our Wombles of Wimbledon…
Jesuit Missions Wombles are an iconic part of the London Marathon. Ever since creator Elizabeth Beresford gave the Jesuit Missions team permission to race dressed as Wombles, our runners have been braving the furry costumes to help raise money for people in need.
If you would like to take your marathon challenge to the next level (the current Womble course record stands at 3hrs30m) and become a celebrity on race day, let a member of our team know!
Last year, your donations to the Jesuit Missions London Marathon team helped provide an education to people whose lives have been devastated by conflict and displacement in South Sudan.
We are working with Jesuit Refugee Service in Maban, South Sudan to offer quality education, counselling and training to children and adults from both refugee and host communities.
