55 Mile Mission

Join Team Tenovus this Breast Cancer Awareness Month for the 55 Mile Mission!

55 Miles. 1 Month. 1 Mission.

Could you take on the challenge and join our mission?

Walk, run or wheel 55 miles in October and support all those affected by cancer.

Join our mission this Breast Cancer Awareness Month and take on the 55 Mile Mission. Do it on your own, or as part of a team, or even challenge your friends to join. It doesn’t matter whether you’re an experienced walker, runner or cyclist, want to get a bit fitter, or just fancy the challenge – all that matters is doing your part for breast cancer awareness. 

How to register?

Signing up is easy, and completely free! And, as a thank you for your support- we’ll even send you one of our Team Tenovus Cancer Care t-shirts, which you can wear with pride. 

All we ask in return is that you pledge to raise at least £55 in fundraising, to support all those affected by cancer in Wales and beyond. £55 will allow our cancer nurses to provide support and guidance to four people going through cancer treatment through our call back service or could pay for the venue hire for two choir rehearsals for one of our 16 Sing with Us choirs across Wales


Who is this challenge for?

For anyone! Take on your 55mile mission in one go or over the month! You don’t need to be an experienced walker, runner or cyclist to take on this challenge! Whether you’re a casual walker, or just starting your fitness journey, this challenge allows you to take it at your own pace, building up the miles as you go!

55 miles in the month is the equivalent to 13.7 miles per week or 1.7 miles per day!

We Need You!

Every year, 55,000 people in the UK are diagnosed with Breast Cancer: that’s 150 cases every day.

That’s why Tenovus Cancer Care is asking you to take on the virtual challenge, of running / walking or wheeling 55 miles within the month of October, to raise vital awareness and funds for all those affected by cancer.

In 1970s researchers at the Tenovus Institute for Cancer Research helped develop the use of Tamoxifen, the most widely used breast cancer drug in the world. Since then, it’s gone on to save the lives of millions of women with breast cancer worldwide.

Today, thanks to amazing people like you, Tenovus Cancer Care is able to support thousands of people with cancer every year.
