Headline Charity Partner

We’re the only ones fighting over 200 cancers, including the 1 that matters most to you. Our life-saving work is funded entirely by the generosity of our supporters, so every step we make towards beating cancer relies on every pound, and every runner.

Thanks to our amazing supporters, survival rates across all forms of cancer have doubled in the last 40 years, but we can’t stop there. Our ambition is to accelerate progress and see three quarters of patients surviving cancer within the next 20 years.

Join our team today and together, we will beat cancer.

National Charity Partner

Alzheimer’s Research UK is the UK’s leading dementia research charity dedicated to diagnosis, prevention, treatment and cure.

Backed by our passionate scientists and supporters, we’re challenging the way people think about dementia, bringing together the people and organisations who can speed up progress, and investing in research to make life-changing breakthroughs possible.

 

The Charlie Waller Memorial Trust is a leading mental health charity which focuses on young people’s mental well-being.

With 1 in 10 young people now experiencing mental health difficulties, the charity’s work has never been more important.

The Charlie Waller Memorial Trust gives young people the tools to take care of their own mental health. We also train and educate those people best placed to spot when a young person might be in trouble and offer the necessary support, such as parents, teachers, university staff and line managers.

 

 

Local Charity Partner

Join Team CRCC for a fantastic way to mark International Women’s Day 2020!

At Cambridge Rape Crisis Centre, we want all women and girls to be free from the fear and experience of sexual violence. Every year we support more than 1,000 survivors across Cambridgeshire to not only cope and recover from the impact of sexual violence but to go on to flourish and thrive. Our work is only possible because of our incredible supporters. We can be there for survivors because you are there for us. Each and every runner joining us makes a huge difference for local women and girls affected by rape, child sexual abuse and sexual violence, giving them support at a time when they need it most.

 

Today, one in four of us will experience a mental health problem in any one year. Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and South Lincolnshire Mind (CPSL Mind) supports local people in their recovery from mental health challenges. We promote positive wellbeing and we campaign against the stigma & discrimination faced by so many people experiencing mental health challenges.
