Stevenage gets ready to Race for Life
Thousands of women will get in the pink on Sunday to help tackle a killer disease.
Over three thousand runners, joggers and walkers will dress up in pink to take on a 5k or 10k route at Fairlands Valley Park for the annual Stevenage Race for Life to raise funds for Cancer Research.
The event, which raised over �170,000 last year, has more on offer this year organiser Lucy Hynes said.
“We are extending our race for life invitation to the whole community and asking everyone to join the fun.
“Many men come along to cheer their friends, wives, girlfriends, mums and daughters over the finish line, which is fantastically motivating, and then go home. But at this year’s event we’ve got all the ingredients for a brilliant day out – great food, music, fun and games. So we are inviting our participants, their families, supporters and local residents to stay and make it a unique day to remember.”
