Why Run For Us?
We caught up with Jon Sider ahead of the London Marathon 2018 to find out why he chose to take part in the challenge and why World Child Cancer means so much to him.
The money you raise could pay for the treatment of six children with Burkitt's Lymphoma in Malawi. Join our team today and with your invaluable support we can reach even more children with cancer, to ensure they have the best possible access to treatment and care.
If you are lucky enough to get a ballot place we would still love you to be part of the World Child Cancer team; with no minimum sponsorship requirements, you will still receive the same support from the Fundraising Team.
