Mark World Cancer Day on 4th February 2020 by running 12k for the 12 children diagnosed with cancer every day in the UK.

Each day, 12 young lives are put on hold to deal with long hospital stays, endless tests and intense treatment. No child should have to go through this. Together we can make a difference.

Whether you’re training for a marathon or just love running, join Children with Cancer UK’s 12for12 club and run 12k on World Cancer Day (Tuesday 4th February)*.

Please note that the deadline to register for 12for12 and receive gold laces is Sunday 26th January at 7pm. You can still register after this date but will not receive a pair of laces.

How do I join?

Taking part is easy. You can do your run anywhere, from your favourite park to your local gym.

Register to join our 12for12 Club.

  • Once registered, you will receive a limited-edition pair of gold shoelaces to wear proudly during your run
  • Shout about your involvement on social media, tagging Children with Cancer UK and using #12for12
  • Encourage your friends to join

As a 12for12 member, you will also receive the following:

  • A complimentary ticket to The National Running Show (worth £10) at the NEC, Birmingham on 25th and 26th January 2020. We are the proud charity partner of this prestigious event
