We will support you every step of the way. You will receive:

Why run for us?

We fund early phase clinical trials that help to save the lives of young people.

Rebecca was diagnosed with the rare soft tissue cancer Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma in February 2014, 3 weeks after her 8th birthday.

Since her initial diagnosis and treatment Rebecca has relapsed three times: 2017, 2019 and July 2020. Each time treatment has been successful, a combination of chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgery. She is now on her fourth course of treatment.

Rebecca’s Mum told us; “The trials are what have kept Rebecca with us, they have saved her life three times. If it hadn’t been for those trials she would not be with us. We feel so grateful that we’ve been able to access it within our country, being able to come home and sleep in her own bed is so important.”

You can help more children like Rebecca by raising funds.

Did you know that less than 3% of all funding spent on cancer research in the UK is spent on childhood cancer research?
