The marathon route will have even more red white and blue than usual this year with Teenage Cancer Trust as the official charity partner for the 2018 Virgin Money London Marathon.
With the aim of raising over £1.5 million for the charity, Teenage Cancer Trust are pulling out all stops to make this a year to remember and to encourage as many runners to raise funds in aid of their fantastic charity.
Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to supporting young people by bringing them together to be treated in special places designed just for them. They have built 28 specialist units across every major NHS cancer hospital, which are designed to feel more like a home than a hospital ward.
Almost half of young people with cancer are not treated these specialist units. Instead, they are cared for in hospitals where they might never meet another young person with cancer. This is a scary and lonely experience. Teenage Cancer Trust are building a wider Nursing & Support Service within the NHS to help all young people, wherever they receive treatment.
