Your entry fee can't beat cancer. Only you can.

Collection box

Did you know that paying your entry fee helps us cover the cost of putting on your event? But it doesn’t stop there – the money raised by you is what helps us save lives. That's why we're asking all partipants to raise a minimum of £50.
