Volunteers urgently needed at Race for Life


PEOPLE are being encouraged are being encouraged to sign up to volunteer at Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life and Pretty Muddy events this June.

The charity’s much-loved events, run in partnership with headline sponsor Standard Life, raises millions of pounds every year across the UK, helping to beat cancer by funding crucial research.
This year’s event in Warrington, held at Victoria Park, takes place on Sunday 16th June.
However, the Pretty Muddy element of the event is under threat of not being able to take place due to the small number of volunteers currently signed up to support on the day.

Cancer Research UK Events Manager Richard Healey has said: “We are struggling to recruit volunteers to help us on the day. Without sufficient numbers, we will be unable to open the 11 obstacles, which means we would not be able to run the Pretty Muddy part of our event. With over 1,500 people currently signed up to take part in Pretty Muddy alone, this will result in a huge amount of money not going towards our important research.”
Anyone who is able to support the event, whether it is for the whole day or just a couple of hours, is encouraged to sign up online by visiting: www.cancerresearchuk.org/get-involved/volunteer.

Each year, around 44,700 people are diagnosed with cancer in the North-West*. Money raised at Race for Life enables scientists to find new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer – allowing us to move closer to a world where everyone can live longer, better lives free from the fear of cancer.
