Who you are helping

RoseBy taking part in the Mr. Men and Little Miss Marathon Challenge you will be helping to save young lives.

The money you raise will fund life-saving research into the causes, treatment and prevention of childhood cancer.

Rose was just five months old when she was diagnosed with infant acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL). Today, she is a happy, healthy girl.

Rose's mum, Alison
