Why Run for Teens Unite?
By joining Team Teens Unite for the Great North Run, you'll receive a personalised running vest as well as a whole load of support along the way. Whether you're a seasoned runner or you're training especially for this event, we can't wait to cheer you on from the moment you register for your place to the moment you cross that finish line.
Teens Unite is currently the only UK Mainland Charity to provide ongoing social and emotional support to young people overcoming cancer, from diagnosis, through treatment, remission and beyond - cancer doesn't stop when the treatment stops. By running the Great North Run in aid of Teens Unite, you'll be helping us to ensure that young people don't have to face their battle alone.
