Cancer Research UK's organizers are telling women in Worcester that it is their last chance to be a part of the funding race. As of now, around 4,600 women have already registered for the 5k women-only event that is to be held on Sunday.
Last year, the event collected £660 for Cancer Research and this year they aim for more collection by persuading mothers, daughters, friends and relatives to take part in the walk. About 5,300 women participated in Race for Life in Worcester in 2009. That year, the total amount collected for the life-saving work of Cancer Research UK was 275,000.
Starting from 11 a. m. in the St Andrew's Garden, the participants will be assisted by PF2 and Chessgrove Day Spa for the preparation race.
Worcester event manager for Race for Life, Tracey Duffy expressed the excitement for the event.
Duffy added that all the participants will help to make the atmosphere suitable for the race and will also assist the organizers to raise funds so that more can be done to fight the disease.
As the organizers do not want anyone to miss out on the event for Worcester, women are being urged that for avoiding any disappointment they should come and register for the few places that are left.
