Stand up to Cancer
Hercules Events have teamed up with “Stand up to Cancer”, and we encourage participants in our events to raise money for this incredible cause. Please take time to read about the incredible work this charity do to accelerate the benefits of research to cancer patients:
Stand up to Cancer
“Stand up to Cancer” is a real and immediate opportunity to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured. “Stand Up To Cancer” funds translational research – research specifically designed to take ground-breaking discoveries from the lab and turn them into new treatments and tests as fast as possible, helping to save lives. Simply put, without translational research, we will not beat this disease.
Every day, scientists and researchers work tirelessly to beat cancer. But in the lab, their discoveries cannot save lives. “Stand Up To Cancer” is an injection of cash to speed those breakthroughs from the petri dish to the patients who need new treatments right now, and save more lives, more quickly.
Your money will fund research. Our research will beat cancer.
100% of the money you raise will fund translational research. This takes developments in the lab and transforms them into brand new tests and treatments for cancer patients.
In the 1970s, less than a quarter of people with cancer survived. Today, two in four people will survive cancer for 10 years of more. But we can’t stop there. We’re Standing Up To Cancer so that we can accelerate progress and speed breakthroughs from labs to patients.
By Standing Up To Cancer, you’re helping to transform the lives of cancer patients and their families. We want to see three quarters of people surviving the disease in the next 20 years, and with your support we will achieve this.
Cures are within our grasp. But it’s not technology or knowledge that’s holding us back – it’s funding. We need you to raise money and give cancer research the firepower to develop new treatments more quickly.
