OFFICIAL RACE CHARITYOur official race charity partner is DKMS, a charity dedicated to fight against blood cancer and blood disorders:
"Every 20 minutes, someone in the UK is diagnosed with blood cancer. For many, the best or only possible treatment option is a blood stem cell transplant.
DKMS provides patients with a second chance at life, working closely with their families from diagnosis to transplant and beyond. The donor journey begins with a swab of the cheek that takes less than two minutes and can be the action that leads to a lifesaving transplant."
DKMS create awareness and recruits blood stem cell donors to provide people with a second chance at life. They raise funds to cover donor registration costs, and support the improvement of blood cancer therapies through their own research.
They also support patients from day one of their diagnosis, providing family and friends with a positive way to get involved by organising bone marrow donor drives that can enhance the donor search, rally community support and provide hope.
If you would like to register as a potential donor you can do this via the following link:

Members of DKMS will be attending the Southport Seaside 10k to answer any questions you may have, and to take samples from anyone wishing to become a potential donor.
