Join Team NECCR as part of the national 2.6 Challenge to save the UK’s charities. From 26th April to 17th May (our original Children’s Cancer Run event date) we invite you to complete your very own 2.6 challenge.

You can do any challenge around a theme of 2.6 or 26. This could be learning 26 different ways to say hello, running 26 laps of your garden or doing a 26 hour knit-a-thon! What you do is up to you.

We need your support now more than ever to help fund vital research and better treatments for children with cancer.
