About the Battle Cancer Program Charity

The Battle Cancer Program Charity (Charity no. 1193909) provides worldwide fitness support for those who have experienced Cancer. The Charity funds access to fitness for individuals after their Cancer treatment, helping them to rebuild their strength, confidence and independence, combat cancer-related fatigue and tackle other longer-term side-effects of Cancer treatment. 


The Battle Cancer Program is a strength and fitness program delivered twice a week over 12 weeks, specifically tailored for people in the later stages of their Cancer rehab. It is commonly delivered in fitness and sports facilities, arenas, or venues that can accommodate groups. The Charity raises funds to cover the costs associated with delivering the Program so that more individuals worldwide can access the Battle Cancer Program for free. The Charity will also fund initiatives that are aligned to the Program and the mission of the organisation.
