The Mouth Cancer Foundation would like to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU to all the amazing walkers who have spent the last two months clocking up steps to support our 10 KM charity walk. This has proved to be the best walk so far. It will go a long way to raise much needed awareness about the early warning signs of the disease as well as funds to combat all head and neck cancers. Given everything that has happened in the world this year, we are truly humbled.

If you are collecting money to support the Mouth Cancer Foundation please send it to us by 31st December 2021 – Thank you very much!

Did you know that over 2,722 lives are lost each year in the UK from mouth cancer and worldwide the disease affects around 650,000 per year?

The Mouth Cancer 10 KM Awareness Walk 2021 will be bigger and better than ever.  Historically, this annual event has been held in Hyde Park, London with people travelling from all over the country to take part.  Given the pandemic, which has swept across the globe, events in 2020 and 2021 are forced to take a different route…quite literally.  This is a fantastic opportunity to open up the Mouth Cancer 10 KM Awareness Walk to more people than ever before so this year the Mouth Cancer Foundation is bringing the Mouth Cancer 10 KM Awareness Walk to you. 


This is the 16th year of the annual walk, which is the only walk for mouth cancer anywhere in the world.  It is designed to increase awareness of mouth and all head and neck cancers.  It is also an opportunity to celebrate survivorship and raise funds to continue to support patients, carers and survivors coping with mouth cancer.

Why support

the Mouth Cancer Foundation?

There are over 8,300 new cases of mouth cancer in the UK every year.

The majority of deaths from mouth cancer occur because of late detection, due to a low public awareness of the signs, symptoms, and risks.

Self-checks for mouth cancer take just 2 minutes and could save your life, or someone you know.

The Mouth Cancer Foundation exists to save and improve the lives of patients, carers and survivors, increase awareness and education about all head and neck cancers. We want to make sure that everyone knows about mouth cancer so that cases can be caught earlier and patients are more likely to survive.
