Run 4 Cancer - About Us
Set up by a team of running enthusiasts, all of whom have lost a family member or a friend to cancer, Run 4 Cancer is primarily a provider of days out and short-breaks for British families affected by cancer. We give families something to look forward to during the most difficult of times. We also make grants to UK based care institutions and support research into the positive effects of exercise (e.g. running) and how it can help with cancer prevention and recovery. Find out more about us here.

With your help we can help many more families like this. Thank you.
“With a sick child, everything is governed by their health; it's a cloud that's permanently hanging over us. We couldn't do this sort of thing normally. Thank you!”
“Two weeks before the trip my PSA reading had reached 28. After our holiday my reading is now 10.8!”
“Being diagnosed with cancer was an extremely stressful time. After the chemo and radiotherapy it was a pleasure to have something to look forward to.”
“These days out for all the family to enjoy mean so much to us as we have to spend so much time apart. Thank you again for all you do in support of families like ours.”
“Thank you for making the difference to the lives of children that have had to cope with things that no one should have to go through, let alone young kids.”
“It is impossible for people not in our situation to understand just how precious the memories of such a great day can be.”
“For a week I swam and did things I never ever thought I would do again. I did not think about cancer for more than a fleeting moment the whole week.”
“I have been through a very rough year finding out I had secondary cancer. Today was a day off from cancer. Many many thanks, it was brilliant!”
