The theme for the Marathon this year is Spirit of London. If you watched the London Marathon last year, you might remember the moment when one runner helped another to get across the finish line. This encapsulates what the London Marathon is about, and also what Oasis is about: reaching out a helping hand. And that's why we're so excited to share that Steve Chalke, founder of Oasis, has been awared the London Marathon's "Spirit of London" award. 

Steve Chalke, our Founder, still holds the record for raising the most money running a Marathon which he set running the 2011 race.  He managed to raise over £2 million, all of which went back into life-changing work of Oasis across the UK.

With our own team of marathon runners, who have been hard at work training and fundraising through the past few months, running the marathon this weekend, we're reminded of how everythin we do as charity, from the work of our hubs to fundraising is done as a community for communities. Make sure to keep an eye out for Team Oasis this weekend!
