CANCER RESEARCH UK
Take the journey of a lifetime with Cancer Research UK by joining our team in the RIDEUK 24 Challenge. You can help Cancer Research UK fund ground-breaking work into beating cancer, a disease that will sadly affect one in three of us.
How you will help us....
By supporting Cancer Research UK you will be helping us find new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer. Cancer Research UK is at the heart of cancer research, funding the work of more than 4,500 researchers, doctors and nurses throughout the UK.
Prevention – we are at the forefront of raising national awareness on the issue of cancer. Campaigns such as the Smokefree Workplaces campaign has helped to save an estimated 600 lives a year. By promoting a healthy and active lifestyle, we can help significantly reduce cancer rates in the UK.
Diagnosis – your money helps us to fund our three national screening programmes for bowel, breast cervical cancers. Screening for cancer aims to find cancers as early as possible - when the chance of cure is highest. Sometimes screening programmes can find changes that would lead to cancer if they were not treated.
Treatment – Cancer Research UK is at the heart of pioneering new clinical trials, aiming to find safe treatments with fewer side effects, to help patients feel better quicker. Our website CancerHelp UK also allows us to provide helpful information to cancer patients and their families, allowing them access to all the information and support they need.
We receive no government funding, so we need people like you to help us save lives. We can’t wait to welcome you on to the team.
