‘Battle Cancer, You are Not Alone’ campaign launched with some of the world’s biggest stars behind it.
An incredible line up of internationally recognisable names including Chris and Liam Hemsworth, Matt Damon, Michael Fassbender and so many more – see link here to all 60+ names involved (many of which are also respected for being some of the fittest people in their industries). They have joined together to support the campaign which will raise awareness and funds for the Battle Cancer Move Forward Programme – a global initiative creating a network of fitness professionals trained to serve those during or post cancer treatment (see below for more details).
Scott Britton, founder of Battle Cancer, together with his friend Hollywood stunt artist Bobby Holland Hanton have used their amazing networks to harness international VIP support for the cause and created the below videos to launch the campaign:
- The Hollywood Edit – Chris and Liam Hemsworth, Matt Damon, Michael Fassbender, Joel Edgerton, Toby Kebbell, Niall Horan (and more)
- The Sporting / Fitness Edit – Ross Edgley, Danny Alves, Aaron Ramsay, Joe Wicks, Chris Hemsworth’s trainer Luke Zocchi, leading Hollywood Stunt artists including Bobby Holland Hanton, Sam Hargrave, Damien Walters, Bradley Simmonds, Alex Crockford (and more)
- The CrossFit Edit – Mat Fraser (USA), Tia-Clair Toomey (Australia), Katrín Davíðsdóttir (Iceland), Brooke Wells (USA), Pat Vellner (Canada), Jamie & Elliot Simmonds (N.Z & UK) (and more)
- The Stunt Artist Edit – Hollywood super stunt artist Bobby Holland Hanton, Zoe Bell, Heidi Moneymaker and Renae Moneymaker (and more)
Together they are spreading the message that ‘Through Battle Cancer you are not alone’, raising awareness of the unique network of support they offer which is rooted in functional fitness and in particular the Move Forward programme they are raising funds for.
Battle Cancer is the world’s leading mass-participation, functional fitness competition, raising money for cancer charities across the world. Founded in 2017 by Scott Britton he turned his personal experience of loss, grief and struggles into a drive to create unique events across the world which brings people together, creates memories and raises life changing amounts for cancer research. In recognition that everyone has been affected by cancer in some way, Battle Cancer brings people together to fight back, celebrate those who have fought and won and remember those who have lost.

🎗🎗 Watch and listen. That is all we need to do to grasp even the smallest amount of empathy and understanding from what our friend and Battle Cancer supporter Bernadette has to say about her experiences with her diagnosis and treatment. She’s just one of our amazing ambassadors who has fought and winning their battle. With all of these people in mind, we're super proud to be launching Battle Cancer Move Forward. It’s our new global initiative that will create a network of educated health professionals to serve those during or post-cancer treatment. SUPPORT WHEN THEY NEED IT MOST When people undergo or complete treatment for cancer they're often left to return to "life as usual," but for them, that no longer exists. We provide a support system and structure for them to take control of their own lives and adapt physically and mentally to take on the world around them. Sometimes, we are the only help they have to do so. SURVIVORS LEADING SURVIVORS 💪🏽Our program puts cancer survivors in local gyms and provides them with a 10-week CrossFit course. At the end, we pick one attendee and send him/her to a seminar to receive their CrossFit Level 1 certification. That coach then commits to teaching the next wave of survivors. Support from someone who's walked a mile in their shoes. 🎗We aim to raise £60,000 to provide free fitness programs for those affected by cancer and train fitness professionals in mental health support. If you can contribute in ANY way, however small, it is NOT insignificant. Imagine if everyone put in just £1? We would change lives, and that is our plan.
