Tesco is a long-term supporter of our life-saving research, raising millions to help beat cancer sooner.

They have supported Race for Life for over a decade, with 2015 being their 14th year as Proud Partner of the Race for Life series.

How Tesco helps us raise money

Thanks to Tesco's fantastic colleagues and customers across the UK, since 2001 they have raised £9.8 million to fund our life saving-research. Tesco colleagues have organised thousands of fundraising events including sponsored challenges, sporting events and workplace fundraising activities such as cake sales and head shaves. Tesco have also supported us by selling Race for Life affiliated products, Cancer Research UK merchandise and collecting stock donations for our shops.

The future

Tesco will continue as flagship partner of Race for Life until 2017, working to generate millions of pounds through sponsorship, corporate donations and colleague fundraising by 2017.

Thank you from Cancer Research UK

“Cancer Research UK would like to say a huge thank you to everyone at Tesco for their outstanding support.  In just one year, they’ve raised over £11 million for vital research and awareness about early detection, which will help more people survive cancer and keep more families together.  Thank you for helping to bring forward the day that all cancers are cured.”
