Cheer Squad Volunteer – London

Cheer Squad Volunteer

Not For Profit People



Cheer our incredible runners across the finish line as they run to raise money for dementia research.

We’re looking for Cheer Squad volunteers to attend the London Landmarks Half Marathon and whoop and cheer as loud as you can to give our #TeamARUK runners a vital boost as they go past, encouraging them to keep going and helping them achieve their goal.

Location: London

Dates: Sunday 2nd April 2023

Closing Date: Sunday 26th March

The opportunity:

The London Landmarks Half Marathon is an iconic event. We’ll have an incredible choir in position at our Cheer point located in Central London (nearest underground station Blackfriars) to give our #TeamARUK runners an almighty boost on their way around the course. All that’s left to make race day an experience our runners won’t forget is our energetic, loud & extremely orange Cheer Squad!

We’ll provide you with all the materials you require including bells, wigs, whistles and cheering sticks to make you stand out in the crowd!

Last year more than 300 volunteers cheered at events which raised over £1 million for dementia research. To stop dementia once and for all, we need you standing with us. With your support, we can stop dementia from wreaking havoc on so many lives.
