The Children's Cancer Run is our charity's most well known and widely recognised event.

Now in its 39th year, the children’s cancer run started out with very humble beginnings at Kings School in Tynemouth where our current chair attended as a pupil. He had cancer as a child and school wanted to do something to help. Over time, it’s grown to become the biggest single charity fun run in the UK and has raised over £7.5 million for children’s cancer research when it was part of the legacy charity –  NECCR.
