Sign up to join Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life in Corby before the end of January and get 30% off entry fees with the code RFL30.


Corby will be hosting the Race for Life on Sunday, 19th May at West Glebe Park and for the first time, Cancer Research UK is inviting everyone in the area – women, men and children - to join the Race for Life.


There are events for people of all ages and abilities taking place and so we’re urging mums, dads, nans, grandpas, brothers, sisters, friends and workmates in and around Corby to show their support by signing up and helping raise money to beat cancer.


Kimberley Degville, Cancer Research UK’s Corby Event Manager, said:


‘You don’t have to be sporty to take part.  You don’t need to train or compete against anyone else.  All you need to do is go to the Race for Life website, pick an event, sign up and then have fun raising money in whatever way you like.’


Corby Borough Council’s Lead Member for Community, Cllr John McGhee, said:


‘We are really looking forward to welcoming the Race For Life back to Corby after the amazing success of last year. With the exciting news that the whole family can now join in we are hoping the 2019 will be even bigger and better!


‘We are urging residents and businesses in Corby to sign up before the end of January to take advantage of the Early Bird discount.’


Thanks to everyone who raises money, Cancer Research UK is able to fund research to fight 200 types of cancer.  The good news is more people are surviving the disease than ever before. Cancer survival in the UK has doubled since the early 1970s and Cancer Research UK’s work has been at the heart of that progress.
