HUDDERSFIELD women have been given another chance to Race for Life.
The town has again been chosen to host one of the hugely popular Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life 2009.
And it will enable thousands to help raise even more money for research to help more people survive cancer.
The Huddersfield event has in the past raised hundreds of thousands of pounds.
This year’s Race for Life in Huddersfield is again split in three – with events on Saturday, June 27, at 10.30am and Sunday, June 28, at 10.30am and 2.30pm at Leeds Road Playing Fields.
Last year 6,000 women walked, jogged or ran the event and raised an incredible £315,000.
Now organisers are encouraging 6000 women to put their best feet forward and raise £325,000.
Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life 2009 is the UK’s largest women only fundraising series. Women of all ages and fitness levels are invited to do something amazing by signing up for the 5k event and joining together to walk, jog or run.
Many women who walk, jog or run are cancer survivors or are participating in memory or celebration of a loved one whose life has been touched by cancer.
Imogen Johnson, Event Manager for Huddersfield, said: “We hope that everyone will accept our invitation to do something amazing by taking part in Race for Life.
“Women of all ages, abilities, shapes and sizes join in. They motivate and inspire each other to complete the 5k course. Many simply walk round, chatting and having fun but they all share the wonderful spirit of sisterhood and pride on the day.”
