You don’t have to run at the speed of light or fly like a bird to be a superhero – your superpower is fighting against the injustice of childhood cancer.
In light of our new and changing daily life, our Mini Superhero Challenge is adapting…
However, one thing that will remain, is our priority of giving hope to children and their families facing cancer – through life-saving research, support initiatives and raising awareness. Tragically, in the wake of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, 12 children and young people will continue to be diagnosed with cancer every day in the UK.
We know that life might be a little strange and more difficult than we’re used to at the moment. But you can still help us fight the injustice of childhood cancer – and keep your children active and busy by joining our Mini Superhero Challenge!Register today

Now, more than ever before, we need your help. In the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, families of children and young people with cancer, are facing an immense added pressure. Their child is not only facing cancer, but may also be facing a higher risk of infection. Some types of cancer and treatments can lead to a weakened immune system which makes it harder for those affected to fight off infections like COVID-19.
We want to ensure that during the worrying months that lie ahead, we can continue to do everything we can to give hope to young cancer patients and their families. Additionally, for every child raising over £12 you’ll receive an extra special Children with Cancer UK Mini Superhero fabric badge as a thank you for their amazing efforts!
*Please note, Children with Cancer UK must be in receipt of at least £12 per badge requested. We will aim to dispatch your reward badge as quickly as possible but there may be a slight delay due to current trading and movement restrictions. What resources do I need?
