The Jenson Button Trust

World class Formula 1 driver Jenson Button has dedicated his professional life to speed on the track and becoming a World Champion.

The Jenson Button Trust was established in March of 2010, supporting a range of charitable causes close to Jenson’s heart.

Now Jenson has chosen to focus the same determination and ambition he has on the track to a new challenge, helping Cancer Research UK bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.

What it funds

The Jenson Button Trust has chosen Cancer Research UK to be its main beneficiary, raising money in partnership with us to help fund groundbreaking work to accelerate research and beat cancer sooner.

Fundraising events

Our flagship event of the partnership is the Jenson Button Trust Triathlon.

The 2016 Jenson Button Trust Triathlon is set to be the biggest staged to date with the capacity for nearly double the amount of competitors as seen in previous years. It will be held in Markeaton Park in Derby on Sunday July 17th where competitors will get the chance to race against the 2009 Formula 1 World Champion.  Be you an amateur or a professional Triathlete you’re welcome to sign up, all in support of Cancer Research UK.

Check out our previous year’s event in our highlights video.
