Where your money goes

Cancer Research UK is the 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. Every day in the UK there are more than 400 people diagnosed with cancer that will survive the disease for more than 10 years thanks to research.

They're the only organisation who fund research into more than 200 types of cancer, including the one that's most important to you.

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

Every year tens of thousands of you sign up to take part in an event or volunteer your time to cheer your colleagues across the finish line and we wanted to thank you for your ongoing support.
