Introducing our new headline partner from 2023: Standard Life

Cancer Research UK is proud to announce Standard Life as the new headline sponsor of Race for Life, the charity's flagship fundraising event series. Standard Life will become the new headline sponsor from 2023, and are passionate about encouraging their customers, colleagues and local communities to take part and raise vital funds for life-saving cancer research. 

Chief executive of Cancer Research UK, Michelle Mitchell said:

"We're delighted to welcome Standard Life as the new headline partner for Race for Life. Almost three decades since it began, Race for Life is still one of the most popular fundraising event series in the UK, giving people the opportunity to celebrate and remember loved ones affected by cancer and raise money for pioneering research.

Working together on this new partnership with Standard Life, part of Phoenix Group, we can continue the incredible success of Race for Life and raise more money to help fund life-saving research. Sadly 1 in 2 of us will get cancer in our lifetime*, but thanks to brilliant partnerships like these, we can continue our vital work to bring about a world where everybody can lead longer, better lives, free from the fear of cancer"

Got questions about cancer?

We are deeply saddened by the death of Dame Deborah James. Her story has moved the nation and she has shone a light on the vital importance of cancer education and research. If you're worried or have questions about cancer, Cancer Research UK are here to help.
