Take on the vibrant Hackney Half on 22nd May 2022 for North London Cares.

Cruise down Mare Street through a carnival of sound, pass by the famous Town Hall, head through the historic Broadway Market, and then take in Hackney Wick, which is flush with vibrant street art. 

With half a million older people going at least five or six days a week without seeing or speaking to anyone at all, the need to build connections has never been greater.

North London Cares seeks to reduce loneliness amongst older and younger people, alike, by connecting them, through our face to face programmes across Camden and Islington.

However, due to Covid-19 we transitioned these programmes to virtual ones. Now, we are running a mixture of in-person and virtual activities, to ensure everyone can access our programmes.

65% of the neighbours we work with count North London Cares networks as their only form of social connection. We are supporting those most at risk of extreme social isolation and at highest risk of severe illness from Covid-19.

In taking on this half marathon, you'll be supporting this work, tackling loneliness and connecting neighbours as we transition out of lockdown and hope to enter into a new phase of face to face/virtual hybrid social clubs.
