Headline 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.

 

 

National Charity Partners

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.

 

At Macmillan, we give people with cancer everything we’ve got. If you’re diagnosed, your worries are our worries. We will move mountains to help you live life as fully as you can. And we don’t stop there. We’re going all out to find ever better ways to help people with cancer, helping to bring forward the day when everyone gets life-transforming support from day one.

 

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

With 1 in 10 young people experiencing mental health difficulties, and the inevitable impact of Covid-19 on mental wellbeing, the charity’s work has never been more important. The Charlie Waller 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 Partners

Cambridge Rape Crisis Centre is local specialist sexual violence charity, offering free, confidential support to women and girls across Cambridgeshire who have been impacted by rape and all forms of sexual violence and abuse.

Our work is only possible thanks to our incredible supporters. Each and every runner helps us to provide life-changing, life-saving support at a time when we are seeing more survivors of sexual violence reaching out to us than ever before.

CPSL Mind supports people with mental health problems across Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and South Lincolnshire. In 2020/21 we provided direct support to 4,310 people. Services include; crisis support, counselling, workshops & peer support groups, 1-2-1 support, community development and mental health training. We promote positive wellbeing and campaign against the stigma & discrimination faced by so many.
