Fundraising challenges

Run, walk or cycle for our charity. Keep the event local to Sheffield, or expand to wider areas of Yorkshire and Derbyshire. Keep fit whilst fundraising, all in the name of charity. We will provide you with Cavendish Cancer Care branded vests and T-Shirts and we will offer support any way we can.

Running events

Get a place in a running event and run for Cavendish Cancer Care. Whether it’s long distance running or a short distance fun run, your friends and family will be sure to donate. The money you raise will improve the lives of cancer patients.

A calendar of running events in and around Yorkshire can be found here.

London marathon

Cavendish Cancer Care will not be allocated another London marathon place until 2018 but you can get a place and run on our behalf. To get a place, apply on the London marathon website.


We can offer you a range of fundraising walks –in some of the region’s most scenic locations. Chatsworth House holds some of the easier walks, whilst Pennine Way walks are available for the more serious walker. At the easy end we have walks at Chatsworth house for all abilities.

On your bike

Many people undertake cycling challenges on our behalf. This can be a family ride round Rother Valley Country park to a coast to coast challenge or perhaps something more adventurous overseas.


If you’ve ever had the urge to jump out of a perfectly good airplane then we can offer a number of different types of skydiving and parachute jumping experiences. Please get in touch with the fundriasing team on or tel: 0114 275 4070 to discuss this with us. We work with a number of experienced skydiving providers who offer various options.

Just ask your friends, family and work colleagues how much they are prepared to pay not to jump out of an aircraft, and put that money pledge to Cavendish Cancer Care.
