Volunteer with Shelter Vertical Rush 2020!

Volunteer with Shelter Vertical Rush – the ultimate tower run in London!


Shelter’s Vertical Rush is the original tower running challenge taking place in the City of London. 1200 people will be taking on Tower 42, with its gruelling 932 steps, to raise money to help families in Britain facing bad housing and homelessness.

We are looking for enthusiastic, passionate volunteers with a can-do attitude who are interested in working behind the scenes at an award-winning charity event.

This event relies on dedicated volunteers, so with your support, we can help millions of people struggling with homelessness in London and across the United Kingdom.
