Corby's Race For Life

By Kim Degville

People in Corby are being encouraged to make a date to join Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life.


This year, for the first time, Cancer Research UK is inviting everyone in the area – women, men and children - to join the Race for Life. There are events for people of all ages and abilities taking place at West Glebe park on Sunday, 19th May.


 We’re urging mums, dads, nans, grandpas, brothers, sisters, friends and workmates to show their support by joining the Race for Life.  It’s a perfect example of everyday people doing an extraordinary thing – uniting in a common cause to beat cancer.


Kimberley Degville, Cancer Research UK’s Corby Event Manager, said: You don’t have to be sporty to take part.  You don’t need to train or compete against anyone else.  All you need to do is go to the Race for Life website, pick an event, sign up and then have fun raising money in whatever way you like.”


Thanks to everyone who raises money, Cancer Research UK is able to fund research to fight 200 types of cancer.  The good news is more people are surviving the disease than ever before. Cancer survival in the UK has doubled since the early 1970s and Cancer Research UK’s work has been at the heart of that progress.
