How your fundraising will help beat childhood cancer

Every week, around five children in the UK lose their lives to cancer. That’s five families who are faced with the worst news possible.

Great Ormond Street Hospital cares for children with the hardest to treat cancers.

We’re already pushing the boundaries. Pioneering research is underway to find the most effective treatments and cures, which give hope to children and their families.

But these advances have outstripped GOSH’s current cancer care facilities, and the hospital needs a new home to help deliver breakthrough therapies which will benefit children from all over the world.

A place designed with the needs of children at its heart. A place that will support every aspect of care, from diagnosis to remission and beyond.

That home will be the new Children’s Cancer Centre at GOSH.

The money raised from RBC Race for the Kids 2023 will help build a new world-class centre that will treat the child, not just their disease. A gateway for children to go on to better futures, where they not only survive, but flourish.

Together we can build it. Together we can help beat childhood cancer.
