The knowledge that you are changing the lives of children, young people and families facing cancer.
Cancer is shocking, overwhelming, isolating… and completely unfair. Especially when you’re young. It takes over your life. Treatment is gruelling and your ambitions and dreams suddenly seem very far away.
We get that. That’s why Young Lives vs Cancer fights tirelessly to stop cancer destroying young lives. We provide grants and free accommodation close to hospital to help with spiralling costs. Our care teams are on hand to help families with everything from getting benefits to treatment closer to home. And we lobby the government to make sure they get the support they’re entitled to. We’re here to make sure young cancer patients can focus on getting their lives back on track.
The great thing about the Virtual London Marathon is that you can decided exactly how to walk, jog or run your race. Rather than the usual time limits you would have, the only time constraint you have is finishing the distance within 23 hours, 59 minutes and 59 seconds.
No! You can decide how to take on your challenge. Finish it all at once, or break it up into smaller sections. Do half in the morning and half in the evening. You have full control over your race. It just has to be completed before 11:59 pm on October 2 2022, and recorded on the official London Marathon app.
It’s the same distance, the same medal, the same race number, the same glory, the main difference is that you can choose where and how to complete it.
You can choose to jog laps around your local park, you can be dropped off 26.2 miles from home and walk back, or you can plan a loop around somewhere completely new. This is your opportunity to put your own spin on the London Marathon. Walk, jog, run… it’s your choice.
