Running

for

Radiotherapy

 

“Radiotherapy is such an important cancer treatment - it helped to save my life when I was diagnosed with throat cancer. So please consider ‘Running for Radiotherapy’ . As well as being a great way to get fit and look after your health, you’ll also be supporting Action Radiotherapy’s work to make sure everyone in the UK has access to the best radiotherapy treatments available.”

Bryan Robson OBE

Patron of Action Radiotherapy

If you would like to do your own #running4radiotherapy event to support Action Radiotherapy, please contact our team via email at info@actionradiotherapy.org.

We all know exercise is good for us but running has been found to have some "surprising physical and mental health benefits" - The Telegraph online

-

"Running is one of the best things you can get into. I’ve been running on and off for years, and while I still struggle to discipline myself to put my shoes on and head out the door, I can 100% say that every single time I’ve come back from a run, I feel great and am glad I went" - The Joy of Running by Katie Holmes

The British 10k, Westminster, Action Radiotherapy Team

 

 

 

 

 

Sunday 15 July 2018 – the team from Action Radiotherapy and ARCNet donned their running gear on Sunday to run a 10k charity race. Set against the backdrop of the heart of London on a glorious hot sunny day, the course took in the Embankment, Big Ben, Trafalgar Square and Westminster Abbey. Due to ARCNet’s determined recruitment drive for the run, we had an amazing turnout of 25 runners in the Action Radiotherapy/ARCNet team on the day, raising over £2,000 for Action Radiotherapy. Thanks to everyone who took part and to the supporters who cheered us on, and thanks also to Team Vision RT, who raised over £1,000.
