Your support will go towards the £17 million that is spent every year on research in Manchester by more than 2000 locally based researchers in collaboration with the Christie Hospital and the University of Manchester.
All the money raised from this event, again, will be used to fund research in the Manchester area, for more information on the work Cancer Researck UK does in Manchester please click here.
