Usually at this time of the year we are sharing all of the fantastic photos from Children’s Cancer Run day, sharing with you lovely memories of what is a very special day in the North East calendar of events. As you know, we have had to put everything on hold this year and, like so many areas of our lives, we cannot be certain about what the next few months hold.
We currently hope to bring you the 2020 Children’s Cancer Run on Sunday 20th September and are closely watching developments as lockdown is eased. We cannot be certain that this will be possible, or what the run will look like if it does go ahead.
We will be making a decision about whether to hold the run in September by the end of June and will update you on this as soon as we have further news. In the meantime, we very much appreciate your patience and understanding while we work out our plans.
While raising funds to help find a cure and better treatments for childhood cancers remains our central mission, the safety and wellbeing of our supporters, volunteers, staff and other stakeholders will be at the heart of any decisions we make going forward.
We know that the Children’s Cancer Run holds a very special meaning for many people and we will look forward to bringing it back bigger and better than ever as soon as we are able to do so.
