What's On 8/4/14
Ladies, it’s time to take the fight to cancer at Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life
Let’s face it. Cancer doesn’t care who it affects. It can ruin everything without a second thought. It will affect one in three of us but united we are stronger than cancer. We will beat it. Cancer’s going down. And every single pound we raise pushes it closer to the floor.
That’s why we Race for Life. We take absolute delight in telling cancer that we’re coming to get it.
Show cancer who’s boss by taking on a 5k Race for Life event in Glasgow. Run, walk or dance your way through the course and help us say "cancer we're coming to get you".
4th May, 9:30am
Glasgow Green, Greendyke Street, Glasgow, Strathclyde, G40 1AT
