We are Anthony Nolan
It all began in 1974. With her three-year-old son Anthony in urgent need of a bone marrow transplant, Shirley Nolan set up the world’s first register to match donors with people in desperate need.
Now, we help three people each day find that lifesaving match.

We all know how important it is to exercise. And we also know that there’s a wealth of amazing sporting challenges out there – as a Tough Mudder or 10km charity run (you can even take them on for Anthony Nolan!). However, while these are still very challenging, we wanted to take a look at some of the toughest sporting challenges you can undertake.
