What is the One World Marathon?
One World Strong Foundation embodies the core principles of connection and co-operation, supporting the belief that people around the world should work together toward common goals. To reinforce that message, we’ve proposed a marathon, where teams of participants from around the world will combine their efforts to achieve a total of 26.2 miles (or 42.195km) over a four-day event. Participants apply and sign-up for a distance they will contribute on the event dates.
To learn more about the event running from 12th to 15th April 2019 please click here.
13 young people from our Big Local Youth Action Team participated in the ONE LIFE two-day activity during February half-term led by the Metropolitan Police and the London Fire Brigade at Imber Court in Hampton. The young people learned many new life skills whilst partaking in the sessions. They learnt basic fire, pumping and police drills.
These sessions also enabled our young people to improve their communication, teamwork and leadership skills. Overall the two-days were eye-opening, fun and engaging. We would like to thank the Metropolitan Police, London Fire Brigade and the British Army for their fantastic hospitality and support.
The young people (above) were awarded with certificates for displaying great confidence, enthusiasm and dedication to the ONE LIFE Project. Well done to Ishmael, Yuvraj, James, Sharanjit, Rajveer, Layba, Haris, Mario, Iman, Emaan, Maria, Ammer Hamza and Haroon.

Heston West Big Local has teamed up with One World Strong Foundation to help create the official advert for the One World Marathon Event to take place from Friday 12th to Monday 15th April 2019. We had volunteers and supporters ranging from 5 to 80 years (including young people involved with our Youth Action Team) take part in the advert working in partnership with our MADE IN HESTON Youth Film-making project.
One World Marathon's aims to encourage teams that represent multiple continents, countries, and cultures. They hope to inspire people to see the benefits of working together as a global community and encourage others to develop similar projects. For more information about the project please visit https://www.oneworldmarathon.org/
So watch this space! The advert will be live in the coming weeks. This is very exciting times for all those involved with the Heston West Big Local and our community.
