Business Beats Cancer Dundee

Business Beats Cancer Dundee is an explosive and brand new event bringing business leaders and the business community of Dundee together to beat cancer.

As Cancer Research UK ambassadors in the city, Business Beats Cancer board members and supporters raise vital funds and awareness for Cancer Research UK’s ground-breaking work into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer.

The Business Beats Cancer Dundee board will galvanise the Dundee community, culminating in an annual showstopper business dinner event, every pound raised will be ring-fenced to support vital cancer research right here in Dundee.

The Business Beats Cancer community would like to give a special tribute to our dear friend and colleague Ruth who sadly passed away from cancer in 2021. Ruth’s passion and determination to support the vital work of Cancer Research UK always shone through.

As a Business Beats Cancer Dundee board member she proudly used her professional skills and connections to inspire others to get involved in this ambitious Dundee event, of which she was a founding member. Ruth will be forever remembered as a passionate local ambassador for the charity, who used her voice and shared her own personal story to reach others to help raise vital awareness and to make a difference.

More About CRUK

  • Cancer Research UK is the world’s leading cancer charity dedicated to saving lives through research.
  • Cancer Research UK has been at the heart of the progress that has already seen survival in the UK double in the last 40 years.
  • Cancer Research UK supports research into all aspects of cancer through the work of over 4,000 scientists, doctors and nurses.
  • Together with its partners and supporters, Cancer Research UK's vision is to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.

COVID-19 has hit Cancer Research UK hard and has slowed us down, threatening to severely impact our research and make our ambition of improving cancer survival to 3 in 4 by 2034 more difficult. We're predicting a drop in fundraising income of £300m over 3 years. 

Despite this, Cancer Research UK won't stop working towards making progress for people affected by cancer. We're determined to continue our work to create better treatments for tomorrow. Together we will beat cancer.
