Charity Partners

UK Triathlon have links with the following charity partners who we will contact on your behalf so they can send you everything you need to raise funds. 

You can, of course, raise money for the charity of your choice, maybe a cause local to you and dear to your heart, but you will need to contact them yourself to let them know you are competing on their behalf.

There are over 200 different types of cancer and we are the only charity tackling all of them. Every step we make towards beating cancer relies on every pound, every hour, and every participant.

More than one in three of us will develop cancer at some point in our lives. Thanks to research, one day cancer will be a different disease. One day all cancers will be cured.

For over 100 years our doctors, scientist and nurses have been working tirelessly to help bring forward the day when all cancers are cured. Each day more than 400 people can now expect to reach their 10-year milestone of surviving cancer.

Thanks to our amazing supporters survival rates across all forms of cancer have doubled in the last 40 years, but we can't stop there. Our ambition is to accelerate progress and see three quarters of patients surviving cancer within the next 20 years.

With you on board we can accelerate our progress and beat cancer sooner.

What money can buy…

-       £6 buys a box of microscope slides, just like the ones used in breakthroughs such as the discovery of temozolomide, which has saved the lives of many thousands of people with brain tumours across the globe.

-       £50 buys a scientific sieve to separate out big bits and small bits of DNA to reveal vital clues about how to beat cancer.

-       £150 buys special chemicals to stain the intricate nuts and bolts of the cell, letting our researchers see under the bonnet of cancer cells to learn more about how they work.

When we stand united, cancer doesn’t stand a chance. With relentless determination we can push forward more quickly towards a future where cancer doesn’t have to be feared.

So if you haven't already, choose your event, sign up, get your sponsorship pack sent directly to you and begin fundraising to beat cancer sooner.

one_in_eleven_appeal.jpgOf the approximately 3,000 babies born at Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust each year, one in eleven will need additional support – ranging from a few hours of special care to a few weeks or even months in an intensive care unit. Staff on the Neonatal Unit provide fantastic care for up to 15 newborn babies at any one time and our aim is to provide a first class environment for babies, their families and our staff.

Thanks to our very successful One in Eleven Appeal, we are currently in the process of developing our new Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Leighton Hospital. We are now fundraising to help provide new equipment and furnishings for and enhancements to the new Unit in order to create a well-equipped, comfortable space for families going through the most difficult of times.

NSPCC.gifThe NSPCC is the only charity focused on ending child cruelty across the UK. Everything we do protects children and prevents abuse. Our work is driven by the simple belief that no child should suffer, however we know child abuse is widespread and much remains hidden. This is why we help children and families directly through our local services, bring immediate support through our national helplines – including ChildLine - and provide training and support to people who work with children. Currently, 90 per cent of our funding comes from public donations.

We rely on the generosity and support of people like you to help us protect vulnerable children. Join the NSPCC team and receive top notch training and fundraising advice, a personalised t-shirt or vest and lots of support and encouragement in the build up to your event. Take on your challenge for children.

Contact the NSPCC team on 020 3772 9270 or email running@nspcc.org.uk
