Employee Volunteering

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us to help save lives.

As a result of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak, and advice from the Government, we’re pausing many volunteer applications for the moment. We have also sadly  had to cancel the 2020 Race for Life, Pretty Muddy and Shine event series.

Although many of our volunteering opportunities are currently paused, you can read more about our employee volunteering opportunities below. 

We'd love you to sign up today - it may take us a little longer than normal to process your application, but we promise to be in touch as soon as possible. 

Cheer on our event partipants


We run 400 events annually, but we can’t do this without the help of volunteers on the day to support our 700,000 participants and make sure they have a great day. There are lots of ways your employees can help our amazing volunteers who support with our events, like setting up marquees, marshalling, dealing with enquiries, cheering on participants, handing out medals, or using specific skills (e.g. helping to transport event kit overnight).

Group size: Sign up as an individual or group
