Race For Life is making its way to Corby THIS Sunday (19th May) and there’s still time to sign up and do your bit for Cancer Research UK!

 

This huge event will take place at West Glebe Park, Cottingham Road and local women, men and children are being urged to sign up to help make it an even bigger success than last year.

Race for Life events are non-competitive and participants can choose to walk, jog or run around the course. Whether you plan to pound the pavements or stroll to the finish, every step you take will help to support life-saving research. Race for Life brings millions of women together to support our life-saving research. Just by signing up you’ll make a difference and whether you raise £10 or £200, every penny matters.

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

‘After the success of last year, we are so excited that Race For Life is coming back to Corby this weekend and hope to see the population of Corby and surrounding areas turn up to either take part or cheer from the sidelines.

‘The Race for Life events really do bring millions of people together and every single penny that is raised helps to fight Cancer!

‘Sadly most of us have all been affected or have someone close to us that has been affected by Cancer but with events such as Race for Life we can help more people beat it.’

To sign up, just head to www.raceforlife.org, search for Corby and choose your event.
