Fancy an outdoor challenge while raising vital funds for Cancer Research UK? This September and October, the Big Hike is being launched in four iconic locations across the UK – the Yorkshire Dales, Brecon Beacons, Peak District and South Coast.
Big Hike is a marathon distance hiking event with routes that are unique to the charity. The routes are fully planned with plenty of support points along the way and maps provided at registration. Participants will also receive lunch en route followed by a hot meal and medal at the finish line.
Cancer Research UK is the largest charitable funder of cancer research in the world, and although fundraising has been impacted by the pandemic, its determination to beat cancer hasn’t faltered. Gareth Mulcahy, Head of Events and Sports for Cancer Research UK, says: “One in two people will get cancer in their lifetime, but all of us can support the research that will beat it. The charity is determined to continue making transformative steps in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of the disease.
“Every day we see the benefits of the work that Cancer Research UK has funded, with new clinical trials opening and breakthroughs being reported. People across the UK can help to support more work like this by signing up to Big Hike.”
