Join Team Macmillan for the Cheltenham Half Marathon or 10K this September and help people living with cancer get the support they need now, more than ever.
In Cheltenham there are 4,000 people living with cancer. It is our mission to be with everyone from the point of diagnosis, but we can’t do this without your support. By pledging to raise £250 you could pay for a specialised Macmillan nurse for over 1 day, who can help treat and manage health concerns, offer emotional and physical support, and give specialised personal care to people living with cancer.
£250 could also fund:
A small benefits advice centre, providing essential welfare advice to people diagnosed with cancer.
175 posters for GP practises giving specific advice about support available locally.
16 hours of Macmillan’s online community which helps reach over 973,000 people a year.
Life with cancer is still life – let’s help people live it.
