Virgin Money London Marathon 2017

Date : 23rd April 2017

Location : London, UK

The London Marathon is the Guinness World Record’s largest annual fundraising event in the world!

We have now filled our place for the London Marathon 2017.

Run for Kidscan Children’s Cancer Research and you can help us fight childhood cancer. We want EVERY child with cancer to survive and thrive.

This year in the UK around 1,600 children will be diagnosed with cancer.

Unfortunately 1 in 5 will not survive. Those that do can be left with physical development problems and severe emotional issues as a result of their treatment. This is why Kidscan Children’s Cancer Research exist; this is why your support is so vital. Survival rates for childhood cancer are improving but treatments for children are still inadequate. They often act as sledgehammers on young bodies, beating cancer, but also beating the life out of the young person at the same time. As a result, current cancer treatments solve and create problems at the same time.

It can take years for some of the after effects to make themselves known. We don’t want children to spend a lifetime looking over their shoulder, wondering when their next health crisis will arise.

All the money raised for this event will used to fund research into childhood cancer, for more information about our work please click here
