The 2017 Chislehurst Half Marathon is is a non-profit event run in aid of The Maypole Project. The Project provides a lifeline of support to children with complex medical needs and their whole families. They support children with complex and life threatening illnesses, across South East London.
The Maypole Project's support work relies on fundraising and you can help add to the total of funds raised by setting up your own individual Virgin Money Giving page.

The unique emotional support that The Maypole Project offers is ongoing, flexible, responsive, professional and confidential. Each family is supported by a key worker who is specifically trained and supervised to offer emotional support, which ranges from befriending to counselling or therapy. This can be provided to whole families, one to one, couples, groups, and also extends into provision of information, advice and advocacy.
They support all members of a family where a child has been diagnosed between birth and 18 years of age, as having a complex or life threatening illness.
