Wow! What a fantastic fun family day out we had at the 37th Children’s Cancer Run at Newcastle Racecourse, Gosforth Park. With your help we hope we have raised over £280,000 to fund life saving research into childhood cancer. 

We really hope you enjoyed yourself at the Children’s Cancer Run on Sunday 19th May. If you have any sponsor money which you have collected in using a paper sponsor form there are a few ways you can send it to us:

  1. Any money donated through an online JustGiving account will automatically come to us so you don’t need to do anything more.
  2. Click on the ‘Pay sponsorship money’ button in the top right corner of the NECCR website and complete your details as prompted. Then post your sponsor form if it includes Gift Aid to us at North of England Children’s Cancer Research, Sir James Spence Institute for Child Health, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 4LP.
  3. Send a cheque for the total amount of sponsorship money to us along with your sponsor form if it includes Gift Aid to us at North of England Children’s Cancer Research, Sir James Spence Institute for Child Health, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 4LP.

The history

The Children’s Cancer Run came from very small beginnings over 30 years ago. It started through Kings School in Tynemouth, Tyne and Wear in order to raise money for the North of England Children’s Cancer Research fund, as at the time, one of their pupils was suffering from Cancer of the kidney.

This initial idea blossomed, slowly at first… the first run only had a couple of hundred people from Kings School.

A volunteer committee was set up to manage the organisation of the run, and today, many of the original members are still volunteering their services. Particularly satisfying and completing a ‘circle’ is the fact that Chris Peacock, the pupil at Kings school who had Cancer of the kidney and who inspired pupils and staff to raise money in the first ‘sponsored’ run is now also chairman of the committee.
