PLEASE READ ME!
We have now drawn our ballot for our Great North Run places. Our places are limited so sorry if you didn't get in this time. We would love to have more but it is really hard to get places as a charity. We will keep your name on file and try to get extra places later on in the year. Congratulations if you have.
If you see your name below you have been allocated a place. You will be contacted soon with more information. We do not have an minimum sponsorship for you to raise and we also do not charge for the places. As a guide though we would appreciate your raising at least £100 to cover our costs but I am sure you will all do your best. In 2018 we raised over £26,000.
Although September seems a long way off you can now setup you online giving page by clicking the following link: https://www.totalgiving.co.uk/fundraise/berwick-and-district-cancer-support-group

CONGRATULATIONS and welcome to The 2019 Berwick Cancer Cars Great North Run Team - Exciting times ahead!

THERE IS STILL TIME!
In 2018 we managed an amazing 41 runners in The Great North Run and The Junior Great North Run raising over £20,000! We also starred in the opening credits of the BBC coverage.
ARE YOU READY TO TAKE ON THE CHALLENGE?
It is difficult to get entries for the run as it is so popular but last year (2017) we managed to have 39 runners and raised the magnificent sum of £14,000. This money allowed us to replace one of cars and the runner name him 'Miles' (in recognition of all the miles ran to raise the money).
