Your support can help save lives

At Samaritans, we’re here to listen so no-one has to go through life’s challenges alone.

Samarathon is the fundraising challenge that fits around your life. You can complete your miles wherever and whenever you like throughout the month. While most of the thousands of people joining in will be walking or jogging, this challenge is for everyone. You can take part however you like, and we encourage everyone to get creative and adapt the challenge to suit their own needs.

Whatever your ability and however much you can raise, Samarathon is about coming together to ensure support is there for everyone in tough times. Raising £50 could enable us to answer ten potentially lifesaving calls for help.

Samarathon is proudly sponsored by Three. Samaritans and Three have a shared belief in the life-changing power and possibility of human connection to make our lives better every day. As official sponsor, Three is promoting the event among its 300 stores and 4,300 employees to encourage more people to get involved and help Samaritans save lives.
