Let’s do this for Yorkshire!

In Yorkshire, 594 people a week receive a cancer diagnosis. When you fundraise for Yorkshire Cancer Research, you fund research to improve the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer in Yorkshire.

The Great North Run

The Great North Run is an iconic half marathon with over 55,000 runners starting in Newcastle City Centre and finishing 13.1 miles later along the beautiful coast at South Shields. Whether you are an experienced runner or looking to step up to the challenge and be inspired by all the charitable stories we hear each year; we’re sure you’ll love this event.

Supporting Yorkshire Cancer Research

“We received brilliant support at St James’s in Leeds. I decided I wanted to give something back for the sake of others facing cancer. Since then, my wife Bev has been gaining strength so we decided to do something together to raise money for Yorkshire Cancer Research.”
