Make your miles matter by joining Team Macmillan
At Macmillan, we give people with cancer everything we’ve got. If you’re diagnosed, your worries are our worries. We will move mountains to help you live life as fully as you can. And we don’t stop there. We’re going all out to find ever better ways to help people with cancer, helping to bring forward the day when everyone gets life-transforming support from day one.
If you too are passionate about supporting people with cancer, we will make every penny you raise count for something in someone’s life. We will cheer you on until we’re hoarse and shout your achievements from the rooftops. Because you’re doing something amazing; helping people with cancer live life as fully as they can. And they need everything you can give, because life with cancer has never been so tough.
Sound interested? Sign up now for a charity place >>
As soon as you’re registered, you’ll be fully supported from day one by our dedicated events team. We’ll send you a digital welcome pack and be in touch regularly to keep you updated with updates about the event and ways to fundraise for Macmillan.
In addition you’ll also receive:
- A free Macmillan technical running top plus iron-on letters to customise your kit
- A fundraising pack bursting with fundraising tips and tricks
- Access to our online training materials
- Invites to exclusive online events to support you with all elements of your training and fundraising
- Regular e-newsletters to keep you up to date with Macmillan’s news and activities
- The loudest and most supportive cheer points on the course!
Most importantly we’ll provide you with a reason to keep going because you’ll know that you’re helping improve the lives of people living with cancer. Donations make up 98% of our annual income so we simply couldn’t do what we do without you.
How does my support make a difference?
We’ll hold your hand through treatment. Help you pay the fares to hospital and fight for fair treatment for you. If you can’t work, we’ll help you with the bills, if you can’t sleep, we’ll find someone you can talk to, if you need a voice we will speak out for you.
It’s never not our problem. If there’s a way to help we will find it and we will see it through. And we never let anything stand still. We are a force for change, pioneering new and ever better ways to support people with cancer.
We’re on a mission to bring forward the day when everyone with cancer gets life-transforming standards of care from diagnosis on.
So, what are you waiting for? Sign up today, put on that green t-shirt and support people living with cancer.
Got your own place already?
You can still run for Macmillan. Let us know that you would like to join Team Macmillan by completing this form and we’ll organise a fundraising pack for you. You’ll still receive the same level of support as a charity place runner, all we ask in return is for you to raise as much as you can for Macmillan.
We need an army of cheerers to make this event special. If running is not your thing or you have any family and friends who’d like to come and support you on the day, we’d love them to join our volunteer team! The cheer point locations will be based at a few locations throughout the race’s course, but they will be easily accessible from the Brighton city centre.
Visit our volunteer website to find out more and to register as a volunteer.
