Now in its fourth year in the south of France, the annual charity race for Cancer Research UK – the Race for Life - will be taking place in the scenic Parc de l’Étang in Mougins on 11th June. This year, the race will be raising money for three different types of cancer: breast cancer, prostate cancer and neuroblastoma (cancer occurring in the nerve tissue). Neuroblastoma is the most common cancer in babies and the third most prevalent in children following leukaemia and brain cancer.
Participants are welcome to run, jog or walk the 5km race and are encouraged to have a JustGiving sponsorship page for donations. There is a participation fee of 20€ and everyone is encouraged to wear pink for the occasion. There will be tasty snacks, a raffle and plenty of smiles and laughter shared on the day - all enjoyed under the Provence sun!
Cancer Research UK is the largest charitable funder of cancer research in the world. The charity is built on the principles of people, partnership and collaboration, and last year the race here in the French Riviera helped raise over 10,000€ with more than 110 people participating.
