Mum’s the word for Welwyn Hatfield’s Race for Life

WITH Mother’s Day nearly here, Cancer Research UK has the perfect way for women in Welwyn Hatfield to show how much they care – by entering Race for Life with their mums.

Signing up to Race for Life offers the ideal solution to the annual gift dilemma and gives the unique opportunity to help beat cancer.

And organisers guarantee the feelgood factor that comes from taking part in the 5k event – whether you walk, jog or run – will last far longer than the traditional gifts of chocolates and flowers.

Race for Life is the country’s largest women-only fundraising event series where all the money raised goes to fund Cancer Research UK’s life-saving work.

Once again the Welwyn Hatfield run will take place at Stanborough Park in WGC – on Sunday, June 6.

Gemma added: “One-in-three people in the UK will be diagnosed with cancer at some stage in their lives.

“But the good news is that more people are beating the disease than ever before.

“Cancer Research UK’s work is at the heart of that progress.

“By helping to raise money through Race for Life, our supporters are turning hope into reality.”

Last year, more than 2,600 women took part in the Stanborough Park event, raising �189,000 in the process.

And this year organisers hope 3,000 will sign up to the challenge, and help set a fundraising record.
