Cancer Research UK

Page Title Divider

At Cancer Research UK we want to bring forward the day where all cancers are cured.  Over the last 40 years, cancer survival rates in the UK have doubled. In the 1970s just a quarter of people survived. Today that figure is half. By 2034, we want to see three quarters of people surviving, but this is only possible through supporters taking part in events like Swimathon. 

Swimmers like you will help fund the 4,000 doctors, nurses and research scientists across the UK that develop pioneering new ways to diagnose, treat and cure cancer. Together we will beat cancer.
