We’re pleased to announce that registration for our Where’s Wally? fun run is now open!

The annual event, which is now in its sixth year, will take place on Sunday 18 March 2018.  Thousands of runners, families and book lovers will dress up as the iconic character Wally and descend on Clapham Common to run, jog or walk 5k or 10k to raise money for our work. Children under 12 can also sign up for a 1k race and dogs are welcome too!

On the day, participants and supporters will enjoy a festival area with live music, a range of food stalls, a book sale and face painting, as well as fun rides and games for kids.

The money raised at the fun run will support our work to change the life stories of the UK’s most disadvantaged children. We’re asking participants to raise at least £100 if they’re taking part as an individual, £150 if they’re fundraising as a family, or£30 for children.

  • £30 will help parents bond with their babies through reading on neo-natal wards
  • £100 will help to set up National Literacy Trust Hubs and create long-term change in areas of low literacy
  • £150 will train three volunteers to work with the parents of young children to help them develop children’s literacy and communication skills
