Where Your Money Goes

Cancer Research UK is the world's leading charity dedicated to beating cancer through research. They've saved millions of lives by discovering new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, and survival has doubled over the past 40 years. They're the only organisation who fund research into more than 200 types of cancer that affect men, women and children.

Cancer Research UK receive no Government funding for their research, so they need your support through events like Race for Life to continue their groundbreaking work and help more people survive cancer.

Over the years we’ve raised millions of pounds through our support for Race for Life, helping to save countless lives. So we encourage you to sign up and get involved.
