Use your ballot place and join us this September at The Simplyhealth Great North Run as part of Team Daniel. If you would like to join our team for the 2019 event please click here.

Just after Daniel’s second birthday, he stopped walking, started stumbling and wasn’t eating. He was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a cancer which mostly affects babies and young children. Claire and Michael, his parents, were devastated.

Within a few weeks of diagnosis, Daniel’s family was introduced to Sabrina, one of our NE based Family Support Workers.

“Life without Sabrina and Rainbow Trust – I’m not sure if this is something I could ever imagine. She helped us when we didn’t even realise she was doing it. We wouldn’t want to be without them now.”

By taking part in the Great North Run this year you will help us support children in the North like Daniel.

As well as helping children like Daniel you will also be a part of fantastic event. Shown live on the BBC, The Great North Run creates an incredible atmosphere and a very memorable day for all involved. Elite athletes, wheelchair-racers, fun-runners and celebrities will all make their way over the iconic Tyne Bridge to South Shields and the North Sea coast.
