Cambridge Race for Life

WOMEN are being urged help beat cancer by entering Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life in Cambridge.

Organisers want women to recruit mums, sisters, daughters, aunties, friends and workmates now the event has opened for entries.

This year’s race takes place at Parkers Piece on Sunday July 3. Last year, nearly 8000 women took part and raised an incredible �460,000.

In 2011, organisers are encouraging 10,000 women to put their best feet forward and raise �672,300.

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.

Event organisers are holding a promotional day at the Grand Arcade and Lions Yard in Cambridge on Saturday February 26. Enter at or by calling 0871 641 1111.
