Run the London Marathon with Team Oxfam you could help us be there in an emergency or where communities need us most to build or repair water points and organise water committees to oversee them. Each of you could help us provide safe and clean water to 2000 people – It’s easy to forget what a miracle water is with free bottles of water lining the London Marathon route at every mile.Photo: Water tank Installation in Sindhupalchok/Oxfam
"Yesterday was one of the best days of my life, thank you Oxfam for having the belief in me that I could raise £2000. The support you gave on the course was amazing and the reception was fabulous. Can I thank you from the bottom of my heart on behalf of me and my family for the reception- they were so impressed and it was a lovely way to finish the day. Thank you x ... I can't thank the volunteers enough, when I was feeling low you guys were there - your support was AMAZING!!! Thank you."Zita, 2016 London Marathon runner
