Team Tom

By becoming part of Tom’s Trust’s Great North Run team you’ll receive expert training and fundraising advice and become part of a wonderful community of runners, all while getting healthier and experiencing the wonderful feeling that comes with helping young families living with a brain tumour diagnosis.

This year our campaign for the Great North Run is ‘Run for 3’. The collaborative goal for our team this year is to raise enough money to fund three families’ mental health care for the next year.


We’d love to have you on Team Tom to help us change the lives of children living with a brain tumour. We’re asking our runners to pay £50 for a place, and raise £360 in fundraising.

*We’ve filled up all of our spots for Tom’s Trust’s Great North Run Team, but you can still support us by donating*


Own place

If you already have your own place in the Great North Run, you can use it to change the lives of children with brain tumours. By joining our team you’ll receive all the same support and advice as our charity place runners.

You’ll have no registration fee or specific fundraising target, but we’ll help you raise as much as you can and appreciate anything you can raise for us.


Kick-start your fundraising by setting up a JustGiving page. You can easily share your page with your friends, family and colleagues on social media and email, and the platform couldn’t be simpler to use.

The money you donate is sent to us, Gift Aid collected, and your sponsors thanked. Easy-peasy!
