2023 tcs lodnon marathon raised $63 million with enthuse as official online fundraising partner

The 2023 TCS London Marathon, the world’s biggest annual one day fundraising event, raised an incredible £63 million for thousands of charities.

It is the highest total since 2019 (the last edition of the London Marathon prior to the pandemic) and brings the cumulative total of funds raised since the first event in 1981 to more than £1.2 billion.

Hugh Brasher, Event Director for the TCS London Marathon, said:

“Every year, the TCS London Marathon inspires tens of thousands of people to take on the challenge of completing 26.2 miles and raise these incredible sums for charity. It’s part of what makes the London Marathon unique and such a force for good on a day where we truly celebrate humanity and community.”

“This means that the London Marathon has helped thousands of charities to raise more than £1.2 billion since our first edition back in 1981. It is a phenomenal total and we salute every single person who has contributed to this. We wish the class of 2024 all the best for a fantastic day on Sunday 21 April.”

Abhinav Kumar, Chief Marketing Officer at TCS, said:

“Apart from being one of the world’s most iconic sporting events, the TCS London Marathon is an inspirational demonstration of the spirit of generosity embodied in the people of London, the United Kingdom and supporters across the world. At the Tata Group, we believe that the highest purpose of an business or institution is to serve to communities it operates in – which the TCS London Marathon has done yet again with the record fundraising. As the title partner of the event, we are delighted to partner with LME in this journey, and leverage technology to make it even easier to donate and show support through the new event app built by TCS.”

Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity (GOSH Charity), the Charity of the Year for 2023, raised more than £2.7 million from the 2023 event.

Liz Tait, Director of Fundraising at GOSH Charity said:

“Being selected as the official Charity of the Year partner for the 2023 TCS London Marathon was an incredible honour for GOSH Charity. By partnering with this iconic event, we had a once-in-a-generation opportunity to launch ‘Build it. Beat it.”, our public fundraising appeal to help build a world leading new Children’s Canncer Centre at Great Ormond Street Hospital, and the biggest fundraising appeal in our charity’s history. I’m so proud that together, our incredible TCS London Marathon runners, partners and supporters raised over £2.7 million to help build the new Children’s Cancer Centre, drive transformation in children’s cancer care and help save more lives.”

Chester Mojay-Sinclare, founder and chief executive of Enthuse, the official online fundraising partner of London Marathon Events, said:

“The amount raised is an amazing achievement by all of the participants and good causes involved. We’re really proud that our technology has helped so many charities raise more for their causes. And fundraising is also looking great for this year’s event – no doubt donations through the TCS London Marathon App will continue their rapid growth and be an important part of the total for 2024.”

Pancreatic Cancer UK will be the Charity of the Year for the 2025 TCS London Marathon and will be fundraising exclusively through Enthuse.
