This year, the decision has been made to support two local charities that have very close connections to some of our members:

Crewe & Nantwich Cancer Research UK
Crewe & Nantwich Cancer Research UK Committee has celebrated 62 years of fundraising and during this time, with the generous support of the local community, it has raised over £1.4 million. Cancer Research UK is the world's leading charity dedicated to research on the causes, prevention and treatment of cancer and is the largest single funder of cancer research in the UK. The charity supports research in all aspects of the disease through the work of more than 4,000 scientists, doctors and nurses across the UK who have contributed to 19 of the top 20 drugs used to treat cancer patients worldwide today. More than 352,000 people are diagnosed in the UK each year and one in two people survive cancer. It's the charity's ambition that by 2034 this should rise to three in four. Cancer Research UK's groundbreaking work, funded entirely by the public, will help ensure that millions more people will survive. We are proud to be one of the two South Cheshire Harriers' charities of the year.

As a Committee we work hard to raise in excess of £45,000 each year. If you would like to know more about Crewe & Nantwich Cancer Research UK Committee then please contact us by the following links: Facebook page Crewe & Nantwich Cancer Research UK Group or email lesley.rowlands@btinternet.com

Shine Bright
The Shine Bright Foundation was launched in November 2013 in memory of Sarah Bennett. Sarah passed away in August 2013 aged 32 after suffering from Triple Negative Breast Cancer. During Sarah's illness, she fundraised for MacMillan and St Luke's Hospice and asked her family and friends to establish a charity to raise money for research into this dreadful disease and also support people in the local area affected by Breast Cancer.

As in previous years we plan to hold an number of club fundraising events but in also welcome members' donations, proceeds from sponsored activities, etc. In addition, a proportion of the profits from our hosted races will be added to the money raised.
