PUBLISHED: 11:00 16 February 2017
Women in East Devon are being encouraged to kick-start their new year by signing up to Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life.
The new year is a great time to embark upon a new challenge and the charity is urging women of all ages, shapes and sizes to enter Race for Life 5k, 10k or Pretty Muddy at Westpoint Exeter on Saturday, July 22, and Sunday, July 23.
By signing up to Race for Life right now, women in East Devon will be playing their part in beating cancer.
There’s no better time for ladies in the South West to pull on their trainers, get a little more active and join like-minded women committed to helping Cancer Research UK scientists find new ways to treat cancer and save more lives.
Ruth Chamings, Cancer Research UK’s Exeter event manager, said: “Signing up to take part in Race for Life is a great way for women to set themselves a new and exciting challenge for 2017.
“Race for Life events are non-competitive and participants can choose to walk, jog or run around the course. Whether they plan to amble with friends or sprint to the finish line, every step they take will help to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.
“Every day, 90 people are diagnosed with cancer in the South West. That’s why we’re calling on women in East Devon to make 2017 a year to remember. Together, we can stop this devastating disease in its tracks. By taking part in Race for Life, women can make a real difference in the fight against cancer.”
