Last chance to en­ter Race for Life

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk & world Update -

WOMEN are be­ing urged to seize their last chance to en­ter Can­cer Re­search UK’s Race For Life in Peter­bor­ough.

Around 4,400 ladies have al­ready ac­cepted the char­ity’s in­vi­ta­tion to sign-up for the 5K run at Ferry Mead­ows Coun­try Park on June 29 and 30 - but there are still 700 places left.

The dead­line for en­tries is June 27 and or­gan­is­ers are en­cour­ag­ing mums, daugh­ters, sis­ters, friends and col­leagues who want to take part to sign up as soon as pos­si­ble.

Race For Life is the UK’s largest women-only fundrais­ing event where all the money raised goes to fund Can­cer Re­search UK’s life-sav­ing work.

Peter­bor­ough event man­ager Hay­ley Gunn-Bruce said: “We are ab­so­lutely thrilled that so many women will be tak­ing part in Race For Life in Peter­bor­ough. To­gether, they will help us cre­ate a fan­tas­tic at­mos­phere on the day and raise cru­cial funds to help beat can­cer.

“The event will be full of amaz­ing mo­ments for ev­ery­one – from lin­ing up at the start, side-by-side with thou­sands of other women, to read­ing the in­spi­ra­tional ‘back-signs’ worn by par­tic­i­pants to the fan­tas­tic sense of achieve­ment from cross­ing the fin­ish line.”

In 2009, 5,000 women took part in Race For Life in Peter­bor­ough and helped raise an in­cred­i­ble £234,000 for Can­cer Re­search UK’s life-sav­ing work.

This year, Can­cer Re­search UK hopes that 5,100 women will smash their fundrais­ing tar­get of £225.000.
