CANCER Research UK is calling on everyone in Devon to back its latest breast cancer event under the “Join the Fight” banner by taking part in a six mile pink themed sponsored walk in and around the grounds of Powderham Castle on Sunday, October 10.

The Powderham event is one of dozens of organised walks taking place across the country, but the only one to be held in Devon and in such beautiful surroundings.

Cancer Research UK is the leading funder of breast cancer research in the UK, spending around �33 million last year on this form of cancer alone. This work covers all aspects of the disease, from understanding its molecular causes and investigating new ways to prevent and diagnose the disease, to developing improved treatments and researching the psychological aspects of breast cancer.

Sylvia Arlett Cancer Research UK’s Area Volunteer Manager for Devon said: “We are shaping up to recruit mums, dads, families, friends and work colleagues throughout Devon to help raise money and join our beautiful walk. We want them to step forward and be counted as they ‘Join the fight for women’s survival, so please join us on this special day.”
