MACMILLAN CANCER SUPPORT
Join Macmillan Cancer Support for the Thames Path Challenge and help change the lives of people living with cancer.
Two million people are living with cancer in the UK today – a figure which is set to rise to four million by 2030. Macmillan Cancer Support provides a wide range of services to help not only these people, but everyone their cancer has an impact on, such as their family, friends and carers.
Macmillan is dedicated to improving the lives of people affected by cancer, making everyday life less about cancer and more about living. We are a source of support: providing practical, medical, emotional and financial support. We are a force for change: listening to people affected by cancer and working together for better cancer care. One in three of us will get cancer. Two million of us are living with it. We are all affected by cancer. We can all help. We are Macmillan.
By joining Team Macmillan for this fantastic event, you’ll have dedicated team with you every step of the way. We’ll provide you with expert training and fundraising advice and give you all the information you need to ensure you have a successful and memorable day. We’ll also be there on the weekend to wish you luck at the start, cheer you on along the way, and congratulate you at the finish in our post-race finisher’s marquee. With your help we can make a difference. Thank you.
"I lost my mum a year ago and joining the challenge gave me a sense of hope and a positive focus. If anyone has lost anyone or knows anyone diagnosed with cancer, signing up to a Macmillan challenge puts your help in perspective and is an unforgettable, inspiring experience. The passion of those involved and the knowledge that everyone’s hard work and effort is going towards supporting an important cause is incredible."
