Raise money for life-saving research

Your entry fee can't beat cancer. Only you can.

Did you know that paying your entry fee helps us cover the cost of putting on your event? But it doesn't stop there - the money raised by you is what helps us saves lives. 

We know fundraising can feel daunting, but it’s easier than you think. We’re here to help you kick-start your fundraising and reach your target. Check out the page below & our helpful fundraising pack which is full of fundraising ideas.
