Thanks to all who helped break the Guinness World Record

I’m grateful to all who helped break the Guinness World Record for charitable giving by supporting Steve Chalke in his marathon run. Here’s the note Steve just sent out:

I’ve broken the offical Marathon World Record. Thank you!
I’ve just reached £1,949,653.72
And every single penny will go to support Oasis work to bring education, health care, youth work, children’s centres, resources for mums and dads, housing, training and employment opportunities to communities around the UK.
That means that, tomorrow, as long as I cross the London Marathon finishing line, I will break the Guinness World Record for the most sponsorship money ever raised by an individual through a Marathon, or any sporting event.
So, if you’ve given to our fund – THANK YOU for giving so generously.
And, if you’ve not had the opportunity to give so far, we would love to top £2 million and I think we can get there with your help!
If you can, please give on line today or tomorrow morning at
Thank you so much.
