Rugby women are being urged to join forces and show cancer who’s boss by signing up to Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life 2014.

Organisers are asking for girls and women of all ages, shapes and sizes to defy the disease by entering the Race for Life 5k event at the Whitehall Recreation Ground on Sunday, July 13.

Event organisers are urging women to sign up as soon as possible.

Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life, in partnership with Tesco, is a women-only series of events which raise millions of pounds every year to help defeat cancer by funding life-saving research.

Lucy Morton, Cancer Research UK’s Rugby events manager, said: “We’re calling on Rugbys’ mighty-mums, gutsy-grans, feisty friends and go-getting girls to join our formidable army and take on cancer at this year’s Race for Life.

“We know how committed Rugby women can be when they really make up their minds to do something. We want to harness that power to stop cancer in its tracks, by raising money for life-saving research.

“Race for Life is non-competitive. It’s not about being fit or fast. Most women are able to walk 5k in an hour while chatting and having fun – or they can choose to jog, run or even dance around the course if they prefer.”

Money raised through Race for Life allows Cancer Research UK’s doctors, nurses and scientists to advance research which is helping to save the lives of men, women and children across the West Midlands.

Cancer Research UK receives no Government funding for its ground-breaking work.
