Cancer Research UK’s Brighton Heroes

By 12th October 2018

Let Cancer Research UK’s work inspire you to take on the Brighton Marathon 2019

On the same day you could be running the marathon of your life, around 130 people will be diagnosed with cancer in Brighton and the South East. Only half will survive their disease for 10 years. Research being carried out here in the South East, and all over the UK, will help bring forward a day when all of them will.

Cancer Research UK are doing incredible work to ensure these figures are dramatically reduced. Last year, we spent over £33 million on some of the UK’s best scientific and clinical research in the South East.

The wonder team here, are ready, able and equipped to take on cancer research and help more people beat the disease, in the South East and across the UK.

However, it doesn’t matter where you live or where the discovery is made, our breakthroughs help give more people, everywhere, the best chance of beating cancer sooner.

We’re also the world’s leading cancer charity dedicated to saving lives through research and the only charity in the UK tackling all 200 types of cancer. And our vision, is to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.

We receive no government funding for our life-saving research, so every step taken towards beating cancer relies on every pound donated. Thanks to our supporters, we have helped double cancer survival over the last 40 years. Today, 2 in 4 people survive the disease. But the work doesn’t stop there. Our ambition is to accelerate progress so that 3 in 4 people survive cancer by 2034.

Through events like the Brighton Marathon, this mission will become reality.

This year, Cancer Research UK are aiming to have 1,000 runners join team CRUK, collectively aiming to raise £350,000 for life-saving research.

So, be on the team that will get you to the finish line. Wear your free running vest with pride, take a look at our training tips and feel the support from our cheering teams.

Together, we will beat cancer.
