Every year, thousands of people take part in a range of events with the aim of having a great time, and raising some money for charity. For many years AICR supporters have taken part in the Virgin London Marathon, they have dived with sharks, parachuted out of aeroplanes and cycled from the UK to Australia to boost our funds.
One way of helping us fund more cutting edge cancer research projects is to take part in a local event with your friends, neighbours or work colleagues. It might be a coffee morning, a car boot sale or a larger scale event such as a dance or race night.
The great thing about community events is that they bring people together to have fun and enjoy themselves, while at the same time raising valuable funds to help with our work.
If you think you might like to organise an event in your community, no matter how large or small, take a look at our fundraising section - it's full of tips and ideas to help you choose an event as well as advice on how to ensure it goes with a bang.
So, if you are planning to take part in a event, why not do it on behalf of AICR? Drop us a line -we'd love to hear from you.
