Why fundraise for Cancer Research UK

In the 1970s, less than a quarter of people with cancer survived. But over the last 40 years, survival has doubled – today half will survive. Cancer Research UK aims to accelerate progress so that three in four people survive the disease within the next 20 years – but this will only be possible if enough people support fundraising events like Winter Run.

Together with Human Race, Cancer Research UK hopes that the capital’s coolest new running concept will encourage folk to stay active this winter and embrace a New Year challenge while raising money to help beat cancer sooner.

Head to JustGiving to set up your fundraising page for the Cancer Research UK Manchester Winter Run and make sure you share it via email and social media so all your friends know you’re taking part.
