Thank you for visiting my Marathon Month Challenge page. I will be running 26.2 miles in February for Cancer Research UK.
Cancer is a disease known all too well within my family, and i'd do anything to turn back time and get those family members back. If i can do the smallest thing to help save a life that would mean the world.
Given the current times, COVID-19 has placed a huge strain on charities like Cancer Research, which in turn threatens to severely impact their cancer research and make their ambition of improving cancer survival to 3 in 4 by 2034 more difficult.
- There are around 367,000 new cancer cases in the UK every year, that's around 1,000 every day.
- Every two minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer.
- There are around 165,000 cancer deaths in the UK every year, that's around 450 every day
- Cancer accounts for more than a quarter (28%) of all deaths in the UK
Thank you for donating in advance :)
Lots of love,
