We are a charity devoted to stopping teenagers and young people from taking their own lives

Events

The OLLIE Foundation runs fundraising events, encourages volunteers to run their own events and also delivers training. Our upcoming events are below and many tickets are available from our Eventbrite page. Please get in touch if you are interested in fundraising for us with an event so we can share the information here.

Sunday, 10th June 2018 - St Albans Half Marathon

To say we're pleased to be the St Albans Half Marathon 2018 Community Chosen Charity would be an understatement! OLLIE was in the running alongside many amazing local charities, all deserving of the win. We are incredibly grateful for all your votes and support. We nearly broke Facebook and Twitter.

The run up to the Half Marathon next June is going to be very exciting as we work with the event's organisers to make the most of this fantastic fundraising opportunity. We'll keep you posted over the coming months, but there is one way you can show your support now...

We have a batch of FREE PLACES to give away. Don't worry - you don't necessarily need to run the half marathon - the places can be used on any of the races on the day. Walking a half marathon or running/walking 5k would be equally wonderful! If you're interested, please email [email protected] as soon as possible.
Take part and raise money for OLLIE!

Sunday, 15th July 2018 - Glenn Smith's IRONMAN Triathlon

If Triathlons were not hard enough, serious superheroes can now undertake the IRONMAN.

So what's involved in an IRONMAN?

Glenn will start with a 2.4 mile swim, followed by a 112 mile bike ride and finish with a 26.2 mile run. 3 gruelling endurance events, back to back on one day. Over 12 hours of total stoicism and fortitude.

If you are looking for someone to sponsor, we cannot recommend Glenn enough. Not only is this such a tough challenge, but the funds will also help us to deliver our suicide prevention and intervention training.

If I Can Stop This Happening To Any Other Family, I Will.
