A man in a Shelter vest gives thumbs up running a race.

With the support of fundraisers like you, 15,555 households received support from our emergency helpline last year.

Every mile run, every drop of sweat, and every pound raised will make a difference.

'The Royal Parks Half is a brilliant event, not to mention running for a great cause! It was a hot day but the Shelter cheer squad at mile six spurred me on.'
