The annual five-day Scumrun charity drive sees teams, in creatively modified vehicles and fancy dress, travel hundreds of miles across Europe, with the aim of raising thousands of pounds for Action Medical Research. The event takes place between 17-21 May 2018 and follows a tour of secret destinations that are announced each morning.
The money raised by Scumrun teams will help fund urgently needed research to save and change the lives of sick and vulnerable babies and children.
In the UK alone, around 61,000 babies are born prematurely each year and tragically more than 1,000 babies die each year after being born too soon, making premature birth the biggest killer of babies in the UK.
Action Medical Research has a proud history of funding groundbreaking research that has benefited thousands of babies and their families. For 65 years we have helped pioneer treatments and ways to prevent disease that have benefited millions of people in the UK and around the world. Our research has helped to beat polio in the UK, develop ultrasound, fight meningitis and prevent stillbirth.
Your support could help us make the next important breakthrough for vulnerable babies and children.
