Since the launch of our flagship Race Night in 2013, our ACT-run initiatives have remained at the core of our fundraising efforts and our community.
Since 2013 we’ve held seven annual Race Nights, supporting Cancer Research UK, The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, and multiple ACT grants in the process.
The first Race Night was held in the month of Bruna’s 35th birthday as an enjoyable way to spend an evening in her memory whilst supporting a worthy cause. The format was simple – allow people to bet on pre-recorded horse races and give a portion of the winnings to Cancer Research UK. In 2013, we raised £11,118.
Since then, the event has evolved enormously – aside from horse racing, we’ve introduced mushroom hunts, rainbow raffles, racing simulators, and more. The scale has also dramatically increased – in 2019 we raised £60,876.04, over five times as much as when we first set out.

Since 2018, we’ve held annual communal walks around Highgate Wood in North London in aid of ACT. The walk sees members of the ACT community come together as one, remembering loved ones lost to cancer.
ACT also appears at third party events, offering the opportunity to win prizes in return for spreading our message and fundraising.
