This exhibit details the interesting history of one of the biggest and most iconic fundraising events of all time – the London marathon. In true SOFII tradition, the idea was borrowed from somewhere else, but aren’t they always the best ones?
It’s more than 25 years since this remarkable event, so we thought it was about time we put it on SOFII. In this exhibit we look back at how the idea was conceived and what made it one of the most significant fundraising campaigns of our time.
This exhibit demonstrates how a simple but powerful message combined with a comprehensive integrated campaign strategy can secure real success.
