Race for Life to help save lives
NOW the lighter evenings are here, and with warmer weather on its way, I am hoping that women of all ages, shapes and sizes will take this opportunity to kick-start a healthier lifestyle by preparing for our 5k Race for Life event, which takes place on Sunday, June 28 at The Rye.
Becoming more active has longer-term benefits, as research shows that even regular, moderate physical activity can help reduce the risk of cancer.
Not only does it help to maintain a healthy body weight but it also has a protective effect in itself.
Race for Life events are not competitive. They are not about being fit or fast.
It’s about an army of women crossing the finish line together in the fight against cancer.
Whether you’re a running pro or novice, every step you take around the course will help bring us one step closer to the day when all cancers are cured.
The atmosphere is incredibly supportive and pledging to take part, alongside thousands of like-minded women, is a great motivation.
Last year, 2,533 women took part in Race for Life in High Wycombe and raised a fantastic £157,689. This year, we want to raise even more money!
Money raised through Race for Life allows Cancer Research UK’s doctors, nurses and scientists to advance research which is helping to save the lives of men, women and children across Buckinghamshire – I hope that some of your readers will be inspired by this and sign up to take part in one of our fantastic events.
