Welsh Cancer Research UK Race for Life 2023 Calendar, 4th April 2023
4×4 Response South Wales will again be out this summer providing our support to the 9 Welsh Cancer Research UK Race for Life series of fundraising events.
In Wales, cancer death rates have decreased by around a tenth in the last 10 years, but there is still so much more to be done – around 9,100 people still lose their lives to cancer every year in Wales. The Race for Life is Cancer Research UK’s biggest series of fundraising events, taking place across the UK, the events include 3k, 5k and 10k routes for participants to walk, jog or run, as well as the Pretty Muddy obstacle events.
Started 30 years ago in Battersea ago as a women only event, Race for Life has grown into a series of hundreds of events across the country, raising nearly £940 million towards beating cancer over the last 30 years. In 2019, for the first time, the Race for Life opened its doors to men to participate too, making it truly inclusive, and giving people the chance to come together with their family and friends, and join the movement to beat cancer.
4×4 Response help out with the course set-up (logistics, course signage, posts & tape), during event marshalling and the course de-rig after the last runners finish. For our members these are very rewarding events to support, we are proud to support the Welsh events and were thrilled to be awarded a Flame of Hope 2023 “Community Organisation of the Year” award by Cancer Research UK in recognition of our ongoing support and contribution.
