Cancer Support Group 06: RACE for LIFE
By the Cancer Support Group 06
Cancer effects everyone and this years 4th annual 5K Race for Cancer Research UK gives you an opportunity to donate to cancer research, retain your fitness level and enjoy a wonderful summer morning.
It takes place June 11th at the beautiful l'Etang park in Mougins. Whether you stroll, jog or run, you will be making a valuable contribution. The three cancers we are raising money for this year represent all our participants; breast cancer, prostrate cancer and Neuroblastoma which is a type of cancer that forms in certain types of nerve tissue. It is the most common cancer in babies and the third most common cancer in children after leukemia and brain cancer.
Please see the site for more details.
Last year we raised just over £9000 ! Help us beat our own record
