Grab your friends and family, choose your walking route and raise funds for CL Nurses

You clapped for them throughout the Covid pandemic and now Cure Leukaemia are offering you the chance to show your appreciation of their Research Nurses up and down the country in May as we walk together on International Nurses Day on Sunday 12th May 2024.

Grab your friends and family, plan your walking route and celebrate their amazing work by raising funds for Cure Leukaemia in May. It is so easy to get involved and raise funds!

Simply create your walking route in a way that suits you. whether that’s tackling 14,000 steps or 1.4 miles. A nursing team from Worcester Royal Hospital successfully completed 30 miles from Birmingham to Worcester last year – raising over £38,000 in aid of Cure Leukaemia.

Specialist Cancer Nurse Emma Simpson (Worcestershire Royal Hospital) explained:

“We walked from the Centre for Clinical Haematology at the Birmingham Queen Elizabeth Hospital to the Oncology Centre at Worcestershire Royal Hospital in August last year. It took the team 9 hours, 63,000 steps and over 4,000 calories but we did it! We gained a lot of blisters but raised an incredible £38,000!”

“We were blessed with great weather and it was a fantastic team building exercise. Walking is such an inclusive fundraising opportunity and a great way to show support for this brilliant charity.”

Cure Leukaemia fund research nurses at 15 hospitals across the UK. These roles form the Trials Acceleration Programme (TAP) network giving patients, from a catchment area of 30m, access to potentially life-saving treatments through clinical trials, with plans to fund a paediatric network on the way.

Our Cure Leukaemia Research Nurses play a crucial role in the work we do, and our nurses are at the heart of the Trials Acceleration Programme (TAP).

Cure Leukaemia Research Nurses help connect patients to potentially lifesaving medicine and their role in administering these trials is vital to developing effective new treatments for blood cancers.  As a result, patients have access to new treatments, allowing them access to lifesaving new therapies. Without having Research Nurses in place, clinical trials do not happen.

Blood cancer is the third biggest cancer killer in the UK with someone diagnosed with a form of blood cancer every 14 minutes in the UK.

We hate blood cancer.

We hate that patients and family have to go through the pain and suffering.

Use the hate to make a difference and walk with us to support our nurses.

Use the hate to end blood cancer.
