Rugby’s Race for life still needs 500 people to sign up for this year’s event.

It takes place in aid of Cancer Research UK and starts from Rugby School.

Girls and women are invited to get in the pink and walk, jog or run the 5 or 10k route.

The Race For Life events play a huge part in raising money for life saving research into all 200 types of cancer.

Sarah Southall, Midlands area marketing manager, said: “The entry fee only covers the cost of the day so it is so important for ladies to take part and return their sponsorship money.

“This year we are taking the fight to cancer with our rallying cry ‘Cancer We’re Coming to Get you’.

“We don’t want to whisper cancer’s name, we want to shout at cancer and defy it. We all hate cancer and want to beat it.”

She added: “At Cancer Research UK, we believe that united we are stronger than cancer, so let’s join together to defy it at Race for Life and bring forward the day that all cancers are cured. It is important to remember that every hour around three people are diagnosed with cancer in the West Midlands.”

Rugby’s Race for Life is held on Sunday July 21.
