Staff and students at Bradley Stoke Community School (BSCS) are appealing for girls and women from the local community to join them in a local ‘Race for Life’ that takes place on Thursday 27th June at 4pm.
Local people are being asked to “jog, dance or run” 1-mile around the perimeter of the school to raise money for Cancer Research.
A publicity poster for the event promises:
“It will be a fun event, we are hoping students will get involved with wearing fancy dress, face painting, nail varnish and prizes for the best fancy dress outfits.”
Anyone wishing to take part should meet on the Astroturf pitch at the school from 3.45pm on the day of the race.
The school is encouraging boys and men to get involved too “by sponsoring the girls, cheering them on and baking cakes”.
For further information, contact Lauren MacNeil at BSCS (tel: 01454 868840).
Race for Life is the UK’s biggest fight against cancer and the largest women-only fundraising event in the UK.
Since Race for Life started in 1994, an incredible six million participants have raised over £493million, more than any other UK event series raising money to fund cancer research.
Money raised has been used to fund the work of over 4,000 researchers, doctors and nurses dedicated to helping more people beat cancer.
