RunTogther and Macmillan Cancer Support join forces to empower lives through running
04 January 2024
RunTogether is thrilled to announce our partnership with Macmillan, one of the UK's leading cancer charities. This collaboration marks a significant step in harnessing the power of athletics to support individuals affected by cancer and promote a healthier, more active lifestyle.
The partnership aims to create a supportive and inclusive environment for those affected by cancer, offering a range of running programmes tailored to various fitness levels. These initiatives will not only provide physical health benefits but also serve as a platform for emotional well-being and community support.
We are both committed to breaking down barriers and encouraging individuals to overcome the challenges associated with cancer through the positive impact of running. England Athletics will leverage its expertise to support runners tackling new challenges, while Macmillan Cancer Support will contribute its wealth of knowledge in providing practical, emotional, and financial support to those affected by cancer.
