Last chance to enter Race for Life
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.
