Tickets are now available for the GWC10K 2023!
The 30th edition of the GWK 10K will be run on 16 July 2023, with all proceeds being donated as usual to Young Lives Vs Cancer. We are going all out for the 30th anniversary of this event, and there will be another fun, family festival at the finish at Sampford Peverell playing fields. There’ll be refreshment stations all along the picturesque route from Tiverton Canal Basin and when you finish your walk or run, you’ll be able to enjoy a day of great entertainment, with live music, games, a bar, raffles and much more.
If you missed out on running the 2022 10k, we’ve got good news for you. There’s no need to wait for 2023 to do your bit for this awesome charity – you can still enter and run the 2022 race virtually.

The £33 Challenge: This year we are encouraging all of our participants to raise £33 each in sponsorship for their efforts on the day. If every participant from 2018 raised just £33, we could have funded a room in a Home from Home for more than 18 months.
£8could help pay for a DVD to help prepare a young person with cancer to return to school, helping them keep up with their studies and deal with the challenges of meeting friends and teachers after their experience.
£20could pay for a Play Specialist to help a child prepare for and cope with treatment, by using models, toys and photos to explain what will happen. When a child is calm, treatment can be given more easily and can also be more effective.
£33could pay for a family to stay overnight in one of the Homes from Home, providing free self-catering accommodation near to specialist children’s cancer treatment centres, which are often many miles from a family’s own home.
£170could pay for a Young Lives Vs Cancer grant. Cancer can have a huge effect on a family’s finances and a YLVC grant is offered to children and young people with cancer, and their families, as soon as they arrive at the hospital to help meet the sudden extra costs that a cancer diagnosis can bring.

Nobody thinks Cancer will happen to their child, until it does. Cancer doesn’t discriminate. Today, 12 more children and young people will hear the devastating news that they have cancer but, thanks to Young Lives Vs Cancer, they won’t have to face it alone.
From diagnosis, Young Lives Vs Cancer's specialist care teams will step in to help, support and guide by providing a package of tailored support including free self-catering accommodation, social workers and specialist nurses to each young cancer patient and their family.
In 2019 Young Lives Vs Cancer supported just over 148 families in Devon with their very own Home from Home in Bristol, alleviating the financial cost of accommodation and allowing families to stay together during the toughest times.
Young Lives Vs Cancer also provide six Specialist Nurses and three Social Workers in Devon to support the young person at their home, school or workplace to minimise disruption, while still providing with the emotional, medical and financial support they need. We can only do this thanks to incredible supporters like you.
If you would like to hear more about the amazing work they do to support young people with cancer as well as similar events to the Grand Western Canal 10k, then please let us know how you would prefer to hear from us
