Get involved

‘Team Now’ is our partnership scheme, to give back to RAGs who fundraise for us and work together towards both the charity and RAG society’s objectives.

Working together through the partnership means we can fund even more cutting-edge research to stop breast cancer, while helping your RAG achieve more and supporting you with your RAG’s development.

This September we invited a number of RAGs and individuals to the House of Lords to celebrate our very first Student Thank You Reception. The evening was a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the incredible achievements of RAGs and students throughout the past academic year and award a number of well-deserved awards:

  • Top RAG – Fundraising: Loughborough Rag
  • Team Leader of the Year: Bradley Morley
  • Top Fundraisers: Jane Scanlon (Budapest to Zagreb), Eamon Kitching (London to Paris), Sam Lowiss (Prague Marathon)
  • Most Improved RAG: Warwick RAG
  • Best New Team Now RAG: Birmingham RAG
  • Individual Recognition: Kieran Reals

We also recognised Loughborough Rag’s outstanding achievement of reaching the £500,000 cumulative total.

We can’t wait to work with everyone this year and look forward to celebrating with you once again in September 2018!
