I'm taking part in Race for Life to raise money to beat cancer

Cancer is happening right now, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life 5k to raise money and save lives.

Cancer Research is a charity that is close to my family’s heart. Cancer is a rotten disease that has stolen many loved ones; one being my auntie who was the most amazing and strongest woman. So please, let’s get together and raise money to beat cancers ass!!

How your money can help;

£5 - kits out one of our ground-breaking research labs with essential chemicals - the bread and butter of day-to-day experiments, helping to beat cancer sooner.

£12 - buys a lab timer to keep our scientists on track as they go about their work, finding out what makes a cancer cell tick.

£20 - buys a new bulb for our microscopes, illuminating minute details of cancer cells.

£50 - buys special restriction enzymes that work like molecular scissors to cut up the long strands of DNA in our cells.

£100 - buys a Bunsen burner - a simple item that helps our scientists ignite our ground-breaking research on a daily basis.

£200 - helps fund a postdoc researcher - developing their skills in the lab under the supervision of expert scientists.

£400 - is the cost of running Cancer Chat for one day, helping thousands of people through very difficult times.

£1,000 - helps fund Dr Gerhardt Attard and his team as they research how prostate cancer develops resistant to treatments for one day.

1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Every single pound you donate makes a difference to Cancer Research UK’s groundbreaking work. Thankyou!!!
