This May, take on 5K in whatever way you like – run, roll, walk, cycle, swim, skate or even skip, it’s totally up to you – then donate a minimum of £5 to Children with Cancer UK, before finally nominating 5 friends to complete their own challenge.
5K May is a virtual fundraising challenge, so you can take part wherever you are! Not only will you be joining other #TeamChildrenwithCancerUK supporters, but thousands of other challengers across the country supporting hundreds of charities.
Getting involved is easy, just donate £5 or more on our JustGiving challenge page after completing your challenge.
Be sure to share your challenge achievement with friends and family on social media to inspire others.
Then, it’s time to nominate! Nominate 5 unsuspecting friends, and challenge them to take on their own 5K May challenge.
Your support will helps us to continue funding vital research into childhood cancer. Research we fund aims to improve the diagnosis, treatment and long-term care of children with cancer.
If you and 5 friends donate £5 to take part, £30 could fund basic laboratory consumables, such as chemicals, gloves and microscope slides, which are vital for research into all childhood cancers. And could also supply a month’s worth of laboratory protective clothing. This is essential for conducting experiments to develop new treatments for the most challenging childhood cancers.
