Main aim of the charity
Cancer Research helps to fund doctors, scientists and nurses to help beat cancer sooner and provides cancer information to the public. Their vision is to bring forward the day when all cancers are beaten and current aim is to accelerate progress and see 3 in 4 patients surviving the disease by 2034.
This work is completed mainly in the UK.
How the employee got involved and why
I lost my Nan to cancer either this year and wanted to do something in her memory and raise money for Cancer Research at the same time.
What work does the employee do for charity?
We organised our 3 Peaks Challenge and set up a just giving page and then promoted the page to raise as much money as possible. It was a one off event but we may do more in the future.
What impact would winning have on the charity?
Winning would mean more funds for Cancer Research so they can continue their research for ways to stop and prevent cancer which is now affecting so many people around the world. In the UK alone a person is diagnosed with cancer on average every two minutes.
What impact would winning have on the employee?
It would be an amazing boost for not just me but my brother too as we put a lot of work into our fundraising event and we would feel that we have made a difference even if its only small. Also to know how proud our Nan would be of us for what we have done.
