Macmillan Cancer Support

By 2020, almost one in two people will get cancer and it’s the toughest fight most of us will ever face. Macmillan want to reach and improve the lives of everyone living with cancer because life with cancer is still life – let’s help people live it.

Tri-knights fundraising resourses

If you’re taking part in the Schools Roadshow, we’d like to encourage your pupils to raise money for charity by collecting sponsorship for their triathlon, swim and run achievements. Our charity partner, Macmillan Cancer Support would value this support and have some fun ways of how to get involved.

See their useful resources to help your Tri-Knights fundraise for Macmillan Cancer Support.
