What impact will this have?

  • In 2020, more than 250 runners are donning their Teenage Cancer Trust shirts and taking on 26.2 miles to raise funds for young people with cancer. Could you help to celebrate and encourage them by helping us make some noise at our cheer points along the route? Get your lungs ready for shouting, your arms ready for waving and join our team to help us make sure the experience is one our runners – or you – will never forget!
  • We make sure young people don't face cancer alone. We do it by helping young people and their families deal with the many ways that cancer can affect your body, your mind and your life
  • We do it in partnership with the NHS and by bringing young people together so they can support each other. And we do it from the moment cancer is diagnosed until long after treatment is over…but we can’t do it alone, we need your help!
