Teams entering this year's event to support


1 in 500 children will be diagnosed with cancer in the UK this year. Tragically, 30% of these children will not survive. Through groundbreaking research, KidsCan is striving to reduce that figure but your continued support is vital.

KidsCan Children’s Cancer Research Centre was established in late 2002 to specifically support research into new and improved treatments for children with cancer. Our scientists are looking for treatments which are less damaging to the bodies of children and young adults. They aim to reduce both short and long term side effects whilst retaining the effectiveness of many current treatments.

Our aims are simple:

  • To cure more children with cancer.
  • To improve the treatment of children with cancer.
  • To develop new treatments for childhood cancer.
  • To be a source of information about childhood cancer.
    • How we are funded
      We receive no statutory funding. We rely entirely on contributions from the public, volunteers, businesses and funds generated through KidsCan events for our groundbreaking research to continue.

      With all of the funding for our vital research coming from donations, your help in entering a team to support us in the Salford Dragon Boat Festival will go a long way in helping us achieve our aims.
