The women of Bolton and the wider area are once again set to don their pink apparel and run around Leverhulme Park in an effort to raise £115,000 for Cancer Research UK. This years Race For Life has been organised for Sunday, July 7th.
The charity event has increased in popularity over the last few years, with record-breaking numbers always applying to take part in the 5km challenge. Last year, 2,000 women joined in, raising a staggering £113,938 for the research into Cancer.
The money raised as a result of Race For Life allows doctors, nurses and scientists to advance research and treatment to help save the lives of menm women and children across the region.
5km sounds like a daunting distance to a lot of people, but participants can run, walk or dance their way around the Bolton course, in the pink colours of Cancer research. It isn't about beating your fellow competitors, it is about beating Cancer, once and for all.
It is a fantastic cause, as four people are diagnosed with cancer in the region every minute. We're all at risk. If you'd like to enter the Bolton Race For Life, go to raceforlife.org or call 0845 600 6050.
