About this event

Every day, 12 children are diagnosed with cancer in the UK. That’s 12 children too many.

Challenge yourself to run, or walk, 12 miles over 12 days in May, to raise money for Children with Cancer UK. Together, one step, one mile and one day at a time, we will put an end to childhood cancer.

Where does my money go?

Children with Cancer UK funds vital specialist research into childhood cancer to save the lives of every child with cancer and keep more families together. We also focus on making the experience families have during treatment as comfortable and unintimidating as possible – whether that’s improving paediatric facilities in hospitals or funding precious family days out.

“Over the last few years, we have worried about Mia missing out and during past festive periods we have tried desperately hard to have a ‘normal’ Christmas. Finding a sense of normality has really helped us through some tough times.” Mia's dad. https://t.co/pqWtqZnJED https://t.co/XboCXKOJex
