Why run with us?

Despite years of ground-breaking and progressive research, cancer remains one of the leading causes of death worldwide, with 1 in 2 of us receiving a diagnosis in our lifetime. We urgently need to start new cancer cures - but we can't do it alone.

Taking part in an event can not only be really rewarding for you, it's also a great way to raise the vital funds we need to support ground-breaking cancer research. We only fund the brightest new ideas in research and each project could be the start of a new cancer cure of the future that will help us put an end to cancer.

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?
