Raising money for charity is a big part of the Bupa Great South Run experience for many runners.
You may be able to run for a charity by agreeing to raise sponsorship money.
Take a look at the links below for more information on individual organisations.
Dementia affects over 750,000 people in the UK. Alzheimer's Society is the UK's leading support and research charity for people with dementia, their families and carers. Our vision is of a radically improved world for people with dementia. A world, ultimately, where dementia can be defeated. Join us and help us continue to lead the fight against dementia.
Bobby Moore Fund
The Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK raises money for research into bowel cancer
. We also work to increase awareness of the disease. People diagnosed with bowel cancer are now twice as likely to survive their disease for at least ten years than those diagnosed in the early 1970s. Help us make progress faster.
British Heart Foundation
Heart and circulatory disease still kills more people in the UK each year than any other condition, including cancer. Every year, thousands die prematurely, and those who survive can find life difficult and frightening. Every day, the British Heart Foundation (BHF) saves lives, through our funding of ground breaking research, by providing the vital information that helps people keep their own hearts healthy and through our support and care for patients and families. But to continue to save lives we need your help, because it’s only by working together that we can beat heart disease. For good.

Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research
Join our Unstoppables running team, because we won’t stop until every patient with a blood cancer survives. Since we were founded in 1960, survival from the most common form of childhood leukaemia has risen from virtually zero to 90%, but this success isn’t reflected across other types of blood cancer and all age groups. Our vision is to beat blood cancer, and it won’t be beaten until each and every person diagnosed with any form of blood cancer is able to live their life to the full – 100%. Be unstoppable, and help us beat blood cancer.

The NSPCC is the only charity focused on ending child cruelty across the UK. Everything we do protects children and prevents abuse. Our work is driven by the simple belief that no child should suffer, however we know child abuse is widespread and much remains hidden. This is why we help children and families directly through our local services, bring immediate support through our national helplines – including ChildLine - and provide training and support to people who work with children. Currently, 90 per cent of our funding comes from public donations. We rely on the generosity and support of people like you to help us protect vulnerable children. Join the NSPCC team and receive top notch training and fundraising advice, support on race day, a personalised running vest and lots of support and encouragement in the build up to your run. Take on your challenge for children.
The Stroke Association
150,000 people have a stroke every year in the UK. 50,000 will make a full recovery, 50,000 will be left with a severe disability and 50,000 will die. These figures remain shocking. Stroke is one of the greatest health challenges of our time but doesn't get the attention or funding it deserves - especially compared to cancer and heart disease. We are the Stroke Association. We believe in life after stroke. That's why we campaign to improve stroke care and support people to make the best possible recovery. It's why we fund research to develop new treatments and ways to prevent stroke. Stroke Association is a charity. We rely on your support to change lives and prevent stroke.
