We've collaborated with 19 other rare cancer charities in a unique and exciting 20-day challenge.

Complete 20 challenges (one a day for 20 days) any time between September 20th- November 20th. These do NOT have to be fitness related and you can be as creative as you like!

If you can't think of 20 challenges or need inspiration to create your own calendar, check out the collective calendar, representing all participating charities.

All funds you raise will go directly to MDS UK at this crucial time. COVID-19 has seen the demand for our services increase while funding has decreased due to cancelled events.

With more than 55,000 cancer patients in England currently waiting for key tests, the emotional and practical support provided by charities like MDS UK is vital.

MDS patient, Ted Peel, had his life-changing stem cell transplant scheduled for spring postponed as it was deemed too unsafe for him to be admitted to hospital which was making provisions for Covid patients.

With your support, we can help ensure that all MDS patients have access to advice, better treatments and can benefit from further research during the pandemic and beyond.

Remember: Cancer Doesn't Stop for Covid!
