Hackney Half Marathon in aid of Mary's Youth Work Hackney Half Marathon in Aid of Mary's Youth Work 40% of Islington young people live in poverty, among the highest in the country. We have first-hand experience of working with disadvantaged young people. Many of whom lack key soft skills, access to opportunities, support through social networks and suffer an often debilitating absence of confidence and resilience. Sponsor our CEO, running the Hackney Half Marathon on the 26th of Sept, to support more vulnerable young people.
