Take on the world's favourite 26.2 miles with Anthony Nolan – and help save lives with every stride.
Every 20 minutes, someone is told they have a blood cancer such as leukaemia or lymphoma. For many, a bone marrow transplant is their only chance of a cure.
Here at Anthony Nolan, we give them that chance. Every day, we use our register to match incredible individuals willing to donate their bone marrow to people in urgent need of lifesaving transplants. Find out more about our vital work.
But right now we can only find a donor for half of those who come to us in desperate need. And that's where you – and those amazing legs of yours – come in.
The life-changing difference you'll make…
Lace up for Anthony Nolan, the official 2014 Virgin Money London Marathon charity, and you really will help cure blood cancer every step of the way.
It costs us £100 to recruit and look after each potential donor. By running with us, you'll help reach our target of £1million – and make it possible for us to add 10,000 more lifesavers to our register.
For someone with blood cancer, that's 10,000 more chances of a cure. Not bad for a Sunday's run, eh?
…and how we'll help you make it
Now for the exciting stuff – the perks!
To help you on your lifesaving mission, you'll enjoy a support package that would make even the elite runners green with envy. Expert training? Check. Injury advice? You bet. Personalised vest, swanky post-race reception and well-deserved massage? Yes, yes and yes – plus a whole lot more besides.
Well, since you'll be going the extra mile (or 26.2) for people with blood cancer, it's only right we pull out all the stops.
So this year, cure blood cancer mile by mile. Join our team today at http://www.milebymile.org
