Where does your money go?
Money raised through Marathon in a Month donations fund life changing cancer research and provide essential services for people with cancer and their families. These supports are needed now more than ever.
By taking part in Marathon in a Month you can ensure that no one has to face cancer alone.
Whether a patient is newly diagnosed, going through or is post treatment this is an extremely stressful time for them and their families. But by taking part in Marathon in a Month you can be there when they need it most.
Just 3pc of our funding comes from the State so people like you who fundraise in their communities and workplace are essential to keep our services going.
