  • Fundraising ideas


    Your entry fee covers the cost of putting on your Race for Life event. This means every single penny you raise after this goes directly to Cancer Research UK.

    To help you raise money we have created a range of fundraising packs full of tips and ideas for things you can do to ensure you achieve your target.
