Each year over 700,000 people join the fight against cancer by taking part in an event and fundraising in aid of Cancer Research UK, they can’t cross the finish line without the passion and energy of an amazing team of volunteers, like you! 

1 in 2 of us will get cancer in our lifetime. We all have a part to play in beating it. Sign up to volunteer at an event today and together we will beat cancer.
