A team of 80 female members of administrative staff are taking part in the Race for Life Sponsored run to be held in Coventry Memorial Park on 29 June 2003. The race is 5km long and will start at 11am. It is part of a series of annual events organised by Cancer Research UK for women to raise money to support Cancer Research projects aimed at beating breast cancer.
The University team, the Warwick Wanderers, will make up approximately 10 per cent of the people running in the Coventry event and we are looking to raise over £5,000 to support Cancer Research UK. If you would like to sponsor the team and help us to reach our target of £5,000, please email Jo Bell with your contact details (name, home address including postcode) and the amount you wish to pledge as sponsorship on J.Bell@warwick.ac.uk
Through Gift Aid, Cancer Research UK will receive an additional 28 per cent of what you have pledged from the Inland Revenue if you provide us with your full address and postcode. All amounts pledged will be collected the week after the event. We will also be having a table at the Big Bash on Friday 27 June 2003 for people to pledge their sponsorship in support of the team.
