Each of the 5 runners taking on the Run the Peaks challenge has a reason to run, their own WHY. You can find out more about these Charities and donate below.

Help for Heroes

Help for Heroes believes that those who put their lives on the line for us, deserve a second chance at life. We provide lifetime support for the Armed Forces Community and their families.

Help for Heroes provides recovery and support for the Armed Forces community whose lives are affected by their service, no matter when they served.

The Charities aim is to empower Veterans and Service Personnel to look beyond illness and injury. Every penny they raise, facility they run and activity they offer is to help Veterans and Service Personnel reach their potential, regain their purpose and have a positive impact on society.

Run 4 Cancer

Run 4 Cancer was set up by a team of running enthusiasts who have all lost a family member or a friend to cancer. As a cancer respite charity with a sporting focus, they provide relief from the difficulties of living with cancer.

Run 4 Cancer provides days out and short-breaks for British families affected by cancer. It also make grants to UK based care institutions and support research into the positive effects of exercise (e.g. running) and how it can help both prevent cancer and assist in recovery post diagnosis. 

Brain Tumour Research

Brain tumours are indiscriminate; they can affect anyone at any age. What’s more, they kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer… yet historically just 1% of the national spend on cancer research has been allocated to this devastating disease.

Brain Tumour Research is determined to change this. We are the only national charity in the UK that is dedicated to raising funds for continuous and sustainable scientific research into brain tumours.

Make-A-Wish UK

Together, we create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses.

Whether it’s starring in their own films, walking with dinosaurs, going on an amazing holiday, meeting a celebrity hero, or having a bedroom makeover; our wishes are varied, personal and life-changing. We go above and beyond to grant amazing wishes to very amazing children; their One True Wish made a reality at a time when they need it most. Because a child’s life shouldn’t be about illness, hospitals and diagnosis – it should be about wonder, joy and hope.
