Raise money and awareness for Cancer

WORLD CANCER DAY CHARITY RUN 2023 Date of Challenge: 4th and 5th February 2023 Cancer is the second biggest killer in the world. In 2020, there were approximately 147,000 deaths in England and Wales. Cancer can come to in different forms from breast, bladder and lung to skin and kidney cancers just to name a few. But there’s good news. Cancer survival rates are on the rise. During 2010/11 in the UK, 50% of those diagnosed with cancer survive the disease for ten years or more. This has doubled in the last 40 years. This is why the work done by cancer research is so vital and that early diagnosis is incredibly important. 4th February is World Cancer Day. Let’s show unity and support the fight against cancer with this unique virtual challenge. If you have suffered, or know of someone who has been diagnosed with cancer, then this challenge is a must. When you sign up for this challenge, you will not only be helping with awareness, but you will also be helping cancer research as 10% of all entry fees will be donated to Cancer Research UK.
