Why run with us?

By 2030 cancer is predicted to become the leading cause of death worldwide. We urgently need to start new cancer cures - but we can't do it alone.

The research journey is a long one and it can take up to 20 years for an idea to lead to lifesaving new treatments. But there can't be an end to cancer if we don't start at the beginning. That's why, unlike other cancer charities, we only fund the brightest new ideas in cancer research - anywhere in the world.

But we can't do it without you. Will you apply today to join us at the start line to start new cures for cancer?
