Fundraiser of the Month: Dixie

We couldn’t be doing what we’re doing, investing in research and supporting families, without our amazing fundraisers, large and small.

This time, we’re awarding Fundraiser of the Month to Dixie for her fantastic 300 mile challenge.

Dixie celebrating run

Dixie wins Fundraiser of the Month!

After seeing our TV appeal during lockdown, Dixie, who is just eight years old, asked if she could do something to help raise funds for Children with Cancer UK.

Dixie wanted to do something challenging and decided to start running. Choosing Dixie’s birthday on February 8th as our end date, we worked out 300 miles would be an achievable but challenging target. As Dixie hasn’t really done any long distance running before she found it difficult at first but is now running up to 3 miles.

Dixie has so far raised more than £700 for Children with Cancer UK – and counting!

This is such an incredible story to hear of a fundraiser who is both so young and so enthusiastic. Thank you so much for all you have done, Dixie, and keep on running!
