Norfolk: Twilight Race For Life Event

It's just a week to go now until the first Twilight Race For Life in East Anglia

Around 700 women are expected to step out in shimmering display of light at The Norfolk Showground on October 5th to raise £38,500 for Cancer Research UK's life-saving work.

Women can choose whether to walk, jog or run the 5k route. Most are able to walk 5k in an hour and all women are welcome, regardless of whether they are taking part on their own or as part of a group.

Gemma Turpin, Cancer Research UK's Norfolk Events Manager, said: "We're urging women of all ages, shapes and sizes to join the moon and stars and enter the first Race for Life Twilight. It's all of us versus cancer and we need you to join the fight as soon as possible!

It's not about being fast or fit. Instead Race for Life Twilight is a wonderful celebration of sisterhood and hope. It will be an inspirational and moving sight to see so many women with glow sticks and sparkly accessories blazing a trail across the Showground. By taking part and raising vital funds they'll be helping to bring light to the lives of those affected by cancer.

Most women are able to walk 5k in an hour while chatting and having fun. The really startling fact is that in the same period of time, around three people in the East of England will be diagnosed with the disease. 

Cancer Research UK receives no Government funding for its ground-breaking research. So money raised through Race for Life Twilight is crucial to the pioneering work of doctors, nurses and scientists who are fighting cancer on all fronts."
