Welcome to Run 4 Cancer!
Run 4 Cancer was set up by a team of running enthusiasts who have all lost a family member or a friend to cancer. As a cancer respite charity with a sporting focus, we provide relief from the difficulties of living with cancer.
Run 4 Cancer provides days out and short-breaks for British families affected by cancer. We also make grants to UK based care institutions and fund research into the positive effects of exercise (e.g. running) and how it can help both prevent cancer and assist in recovery post diagnosis. Find out more about our objectives here.
Join our running community and help people living with cancer at the same time.
