Run. Celebrate. Remember

Run. Celebrate. Remember

Make Mother's Day and Father's Day extra special this year by taking part in one of our 10k runs, to run for your mum, your dad, grandma, grandad, loved ones or everyone affected by cancer.

Our expert team will support you with fundraising and training tips. And on the big day we’ll get you through to the finish line with plenty of cheers plus refreshments after your run.

 

Stick the kettle on

Stick the kettle on

Whatever your cup of tea, coffee or hot chocolate, you can help people affected by cancer and their families simply by putting on the kettle. Every year in September, people get friends and colleagues together and ask them to hand over a few bob for a steaming hot brew. We call it the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning and it’s our flagship event.

Coffee Morning officially kicks off in September, but you can hold your event whenever’s best for you. Head over to the site by clicking below and improve lives just by making a cuppa.

Have you let your friends and family know about your tribute or event fund yet? If you’d like to get more people involved in raising funds in memory of your loved one, there are lots of easy ways to do so. You can post the details on Facebook or Twitter, or simply emails to anyone who’d like to contribute. They can even set up their own event to raise funds and link it directly to your tribute page.
