In our 25th year, we’re determined to reduce the number of people who are affected by a preventable cancer. You can help us by pledging your special day.

Your birthday can save lives

Whether you decide to organise an extravagant party or simply ask for donations instead of gifts, pledging your birthday means you’ll be raising vital funds to prevent the heartache cancer causes and keep loved ones together for longer.

*Donating just £50 from your birthday means that we can support an extra 100 health workers to show their patients how they can reduce their cancer risk.

Ways to pledge

Pledging your birthday to raise money for our life-saving work is a pretty incredible thing to do! We think you’re amazing and we’d love to help make your day a big success.

Contact our dedicated Fundraising Team on 020 7343 4200 or email events@wcrf.org to receive all the help and support you'll need. In the meantime, here are some quick birthday-themed fundraising ideas to help get you started:

Asking for donations
