All funds raised by runners will be split equally between the 2020 local chosen charity (To be confirmed) and Standard Chartered’s own global initiative Futuremakers.
Together lets #RunForAReason
In 2020 the event will continue the theme ‘Run for a Reason’ to reinforce both Standard Chartered’s and the Jersey Marathon’s commitment to raising valuable funds for good causes.
During 2020 we would like to hear from all runners who have a special reason to run. We want to help support your reason to run by publishing your story and helping to promote the awareness of your good cause.
If you are going to ‘Run for a Reason’ and would like to share your story with the Jersey Marathon then please contact: [email protected]
Futuremakers by Standard Chartered (“Futuremakers”), a global initiative to tackle inequality and promote greater economic inclusion for young people in our communities, is the official global beneficiary* for the Standard Chartered Jersey Marathon 2020.
Through Futuremakers programmes, we can make a difference in promoting economic inclusion and empowering our next generation to learn, earn and grow. Globally, more than 200 million young people are either unemployed, or they have jobs, but continue to live in poverty due to low income.  We believe everyone should have access to opportunities to realise their full potential so all money raised for Futuremakers from this year’s event will go toward education, employability and entrepreneurship programmes for disadvantaged young people around the world.
*£5 from each entry to the Standard Chartered Jersey Marathon 2020 will be donated to the Standard Chartered Foundation (registered charity in England and Wales charity number 1184946, company number 11968592) and support Futuremakers by Standard Chartered, a global initiative to tackle inequality and promote greater economic inclusion. All funds raised for Futuremakers by Standard Chartered will be matched by Standard Chartered PLC up to a limit of USD5 million per year.
