Race for Life date
Everyone is invited to Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life in Aylesbury this year. The charity’s much-loved 5k event is returning to the town and is no longer restricted to female participants.
Race for Life takes place at Waddesdon Manor Park on Sunday 10 May. Events are open to people of all ages and abilities.
The race, in tandem with Tesco, is an inspiring series of 5k, 10k, Pretty Muddy and Pretty Muddy Kids events which raise millions of pounds every year to help beat cancer by funding crucial research.
The events are described by organisers as ‘fun, colourful, emotional and uplifting’. Participants get together and remember loved ones lost or celebrate the lives of those who have survived. At the same time, they are helping to make a difference to people with the disease.
Although ‘race’ features in the name, events are not competitive. Instead, ‘the Race for Life’ describes doctors, nurses and scientists working as hard and fast as possible to help more people survive.
Participants take part at their own pace – taking as much time as they like to complete the course. For some people, the Race for Life is literally a walk in the park. For others, it is a jog or a run.
Cancer Research UK receives no Government funding for its
ground-breaking research. That’s why money raised through the Race for Life events is vital.
It funds world-class research to help beat 200 types of cancer.
