‘Race for Life’ is Cancer Research UK’s flagship event that has grown to become the UK’s largest ‘women-only’ fundraiser. In 2007, the organisation brought together 665,000 women to walk, jog or run the 5km event in order to raise £40 million pounds for Cancer Research UK. On a wet and soggy evening, 22 ladies from Mayflex braved the weather and walked this year’s event, managing to raise an incredible £4,500 in sponsorship.
Tracey Calcutt, Marketing Manager at Mayflex, who also took part in this year’s event, comments: “Many of the women who take part have their own private story to tell and this is their inspiration for being there. It’s a wonderful experience to part of something that has become so incredibly popular.”
Robert Mayall, Chairman at Mayflex adds: “With a subject that is close to many of our hearts, I am very proud that our ladies at Mayflex were able to support such a worthwhile cause.”
