Birmingham Black Country Half Marathon 2018

Race Against Blood Cancer was created by a group of volunteers after a close friend of mine was diagnosed with a rare form of blood cancer.

While our friend is doing well, since launching the charity we’ve formed close relationships with many other patients who are having a tough time of it, many of them young children. For them having a stem cell transplant with a matching donor is often their only chance of survival but the chances for anyone who is mixed heritage or from any ethnic minority are very low.

Our goal is simple - increase the number and diversity of people on the donor register.  A cure lies in our hands and the formula is simple: Donors Save Lives!

To help further our cause to get more people to register as potential lifesavers, a group of friends will be running in the Birmingham Black Country Half Marathon on 7th July 2018.

It is a charity close to all our hearts. With this challenge & the funds raised, we truly hope to help save the lives of many. Everyone deserves an equal chance of finding a suitable match.

Many thanks in advance for your support and kind donations.

Together, we can beat cancer.
