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.

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.
