Action Against Cancer is determined to help improve the survival prospects and quality of life for cancer sufferers. They are doing this by supporting the best of the best – a team at Imperial College, Hammersmith Hospital, led by Professor Justin Stebbing. Professor Stebbing is a leading light in the development of new cancer diagnostics and treatments and his team are making ground breaking advances that will bring hope to millions of cancer sufferers worldwide.

Beckenham Half Marathon is proud to be supporting this lifesaving work. Treatments have improved significantly, but with 150,000 people losing their lives to cancer each year in the UK alone, there is clearly so much more to do.

The charity is run extremely efficiently and is low on overheads and bureaucracy, meaning that your donation and funds raised through Beckenham Half Marathon go to what really matters – developing cures for cancer.

Together we can take action against cancer.
