I'd like a charity place


I already have a place

The Virgin Sport Hackney Half is undoubtedly the coolest event of the season. 

Run through East London's trendiest borough along the flat and fast route. Take in the vibrant street art, be boosted by the brilliant roadside entertainment and enjoy the panoramic views of the Olympic Park.

After the race you can enjoy the Hackney Festival of Fitness with your friends and family, with entertainment, workshops, food trucks and more. 


What you get with Team Scope

The difference you can make

We know that nearly half of disabled people feel excluded from society. Scope works tirelessly to campaign for change so that disabled people and their families can enjoy equality and fairness in their everyday lives. 

We also provide a range of support services such as Sleep Right. Disabled children are much more likely to have disrupted sleep and sleep deprivation can have a huge impact on the whole family's health and well being. 

I felt like a bad mum. I was made to feel like I was doing something wrong and that made me question my ability as a parent. When Tom did eventually fall asleep, I found it so hard to get to sleep because I knew he would wake up.

Kathy, Tom's Mum

Our Sleep Right service provides parents of disabled children with a tailored programme to help their whole family get better sleep.

Tom is a new boy. He’s happier. His behaviour has changed: he’s not so manic and busy. I feel different too. My ability to communicate with people has returned. I like my life again.

Run the Hackney Half with Team Scope and the funds you raise will help us be there for more families like Kathy's.
