Walk the Rainbow and help people affected by the UK Cancer Crisis
COVID-19 has had a profound effect on all aspects of life this year. Cancer care is no exception. Diagnoses have been delayed, treatments altered, surgeries cancelled and follow-up appointments rearranged. In the UK, two million cancer screening appointments have been missed as a result of lockdown and a number of potentially life-saving clinical trials have been suspended. Collectively, these delays and cancellations mean the UK is facing a cancer crisis.
The #WalktheRainbow Challenge
During the COVID-19 pandemic, the rainbow has become a universal symbol of solidarity and togetherness, offering hope for so many in these unsettling times.
This August, your challenge, is to #WalktheRainbow and help support families affected by cancer during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Over seven days, you will take on the seven colours of the rainbow. To complete each colour, you have to walk, run, jog, hop, skip or jump a certain distance. As you move through the rainbow, the distance increases, with families completing a total of 17 miles and adults completing 28 miles.
The difference you will make:
Fund transport to hospital appointments
Provide vital financial support to families affected by cancer
Provide patients with mobility aids and equipment to assist around the home
Cover the cost of essential household goods
Send a family on a weekend respite break
Help someone living with cancer to tick an activity off their bucket list
Create lasting memories for families through our Memorable Days service
