Hope Against Cancer Fundraising and Awareness Week Sponsored Yo-Yo Challenge

Each year Hope against Cancer has a Fundraising and Awareness week in which they raise vital money for local cancer research- Bold & Blue.

This year the dates are Saturday 3 to Friday 9 September 2016 and for the first time they are holding a Sponsored YO-YO Challenge, and invite everyone to take part.

How It works

Local Companies, Clubs, Pubs, Restaurants, Schools and individuals can request a welcome pack containing sponsorship forms, posters and details of where to purchase Yo- Yos.

All participants can then ask family and friends to sponsor how many times they can keep a Yo - Yo spinning non- stop.

Anything from £1.00 for 10 spins, up to £10.00 for 100 spins- or just a donation to the charity.

Winners of local competitions or those with the highest amount of non- stop spins will be put forward to compete in a final to be held on Friday 9 September 2016, and the winner with be presented with a prize and trophy.

The target is to raise over £50,000

About the Charity 

The support of local companies throughout Leicestershire and Rutland is a fantastic show of people supporting Hope against Cancer with a common goal to raise funds for local cancer research.

In 2012 we established and opened a dedicated clinical trials unit at Leicester Royal Infirmary to offer patients access to new medicines and therapies. We fund our very own Hope nurse who adds to the invaluable care and support which patients receive.
