ABOUT BATTLE CANCER

Our Story

After a number of small-scale fundraising events in 2015-2016, Battle Cancer was born in 2017 with its first competition held in Manchester, UK. Co-founded by friends Scott Britton and Pete Williams whose lives have been repeatedly hit by cancer, the team now encompasses upwards of 50 core members, organisers, volunteers and brand partners.


Two UK competitions followed in 2018, while 2019 saw the Battle Cancer movement grow into six events across Europe plus a Battle Tour of LA. To date, we've raised over £500,000 for almost 40 cancer charities worldwide helped by nearly 5,000 athletes.

Our movement brings together a lethal combination of some of the world’s leading professional athletes, industry influencers, global cancer charities, and the flourishing functional fitness crowd from all corners of the globe.

We are in eight countries and growing, with 11 international events planned in 2020, more in the pipeline, and the aim of taking our movement far and wide. Buoyed by the waves of support we’ve received since launching Battle Cancer, we’ve set our sights even higher to raise even more money for cancer charities worldwide. We want to build further awareness of the incredible work our community is achieving and foster the passion, drive, blood, sweat and tears of our competitors and fundraisers.

More cities, more events, and more support services for cancer survivors and their families are in the pipeline. Watch this space!

 

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to inspire, support and unite people with one goal: kicking cancer into the dust.

We want to drive a movement that helps those affected by cancer, to inspire them in their darkest moments and support them in recovery.


Our work is threefold and aims to:

  • Raise awareness and funds for cancer charities by delivering epic fundraising events

  • Connect a supportive community of likeminded people through the sharing of stories and experiences

  • Promote health and wellbeing as a preventative to illness


Together we will battle cancer, and together we will win.
