When: July 12, 2011
Where: Stafford Showground, Stafford
Details: Race for Life is the UK’s largest women-only fundraising event series where all the money raised goes to fund Cancer Research UK’s life-saving work.
Women of all ages, shapes, sizes and abilities join together to walk, jog or run 5k to raise money to help beat cancer. All women are welcome, regardless of whether they are taking part on their own or as part of a group.
Lisa Corkhill, an Area Event Manager for the North West and North Wales, explained: “Race for Life is a unique celebration of sisterhood and pride. The atmosphere is amazing, with local women from all walks of life coming together to make a positive difference to people affected by cancer. They motivate and inspire each other to complete the course with many simply walking round, chatting and having fun.
“In 2011, we hope more women than ever before will take part. We need our Race for Life regulars, as well as women who took part years ago, to join together with many new faces to help save more lives.”
Cancer Research UK supports the work of doctors, nurses and scientists who are dedicated to beating cancer by understanding its causes and investigating how best to prevent, diagnose and treat the disease.
