  2. You’ll get a free and exclusive Teenage Cancer Trust running top to wear during training and on the day itself.

Why does Teenage Cancer Trust need my support?

Young person talking to a Teenage Cancer Trust Nurse

Every day, seven young people aged 13-24 hear the words “you have cancer”. They will each need specialised nursing care and support to get them through the toughest times they may have faced.

We’re the only UK charity dedicated to meeting this vital need. By running 5k for Teenage Cancer Trust, you can help us to reach every young person facing cancer and make a huge difference.

Our registered charity details are: 1062559 (England & Wales), SC039757 (Scotland).
