GOSH Cancer Unit puts on a virtual Relay

This Cancer Awareness Month, staff have united with their cancer patients to raise money for GOSH Charity and CLIC Sargent with a virtual relay.The Cancer Unit Team at Great Ormond Street Hospital looks after around 400 children diagnosed with cancer each year. During the COVID-19 pandemic, they've been working hard to create the best possible experience for patients and their families, ensuring that everyone continues to receive the best life-saving care.
The team have always promoted an active lifestyle to improve recovery and long-term health, both physically and mentally. They also believe in creating friendships and bonds between each other through treatment.
This year, their Cancer Sports Dayevent was sadly postponed due to COVID-19. But they'll be back 4 July 2021!
The virtual relay raises money for CLIC Sargent, which provides vital support to help children and their families face all the challenges that cancer brings, and GOSH Childrens Charity, which supports seriously ill children from across the UK, including those diagnosed with cancer.
