Race for Life
There are over 200 cancers and Cancer Research UK won’t give up until we have cures for them all. That's why our charity, Have a Heart, has joined with Race for Life to say:
Cancer, we’re coming to get you!
Race for Life is the largest women-only fundraising event in the UK. By joining with 50 amazing Heart women and running in your local event you'll be helping Have a Heart to make a huge difference to the work of Cancer Research UK.
Have a Heart is here to help you every step of the way.

Fundraising your £50 pledge
Fundraising for your Race for Life needn’t be stressful. Here are five easy ways to raise £10, adding up to meet your £50 fundraising target.
1.Give your friends a tube of smarties. When they’ve eaten the sweets, get them to fill the tube back up with coins.
Top tip: smarties tubes are a perfect fit for 20 pence pieces!
2. Bake a cake and take it in to work. If you sell ten pieces at £1 each, the money will soon start adding up!
3. Charge to walk your neighbours’ dogs. This is a great way to do a bit of training as well.
4. For a small contribution offer to make everyone’s tea at work for the day - it'll keep you on your feet as well as raising a few pounds for the cause.
5. Hold a sweepstake to guess your race finishing time with your friends and family- everyone pays a small amount to enter and the closest guess wins a prize.
