Teenage Cancer Trust make sure young people don’t face cancer alone. We do it by helping young people and their families deal with the many ways that cancer can affect your body, your mind and your life. We do it in partnership with the NHS and by bringing young people together so they can support each other. And we do it from the moment cancer is diagnosed until long after treatment is over…but we can’t do it alone, we need your help!

The Edinburgh Marathon Festival is a significant fundraising event for Teenage Cancer Trust. Together our runners are going to raise over £65 300 to support young people with cancer – so thank you for contributing towards this event! This is your chance to cheer on our amazing team of Teenage Cancer Trust runners at the wonderful Edinburgh Marathon! We’d love you to join our enthusiastic cheering squad to support and encourage our runners to keep putting one foot in front of the other! You will be playing a big part in making sure we can make our runners feel special and appreciated for the incredible challenge they’re undertaking.
