A QUEENSFERRY fundraiser is calling on women who took part in Tesco and Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life event to return their sponsorship money as soon as possible.
The plea comes after almost a third of the women who took part in Race for Life last year did not return any sponsorship money.
Hamish Moir, event manager for Queensferry, said: “We are grateful to the thousands of women who walked, jogged and ran Race for Life in Queensferry. Their spirit and determination created an amazing atmosphere on the day as they came together to help beat cancer.”
“We want to say a heart-felt thanks to everyone who took part or supported our participants, as well as the wonderful volunteers who helped make it happen.
“Now the big day is over, we are asking our supporters to take one last step – by returning the money they have raised so that we can go on funding much needed research.
“So, whatever the amount, we’re asking everyone to make every effort to return their sponsorship money as soon as possible. It can be paid in online, by phone or by cheque.”
Cancer Research UK relies on money raised through Race for Life to fund life-saving research. Every hour, around three people are diagnosed with cancer in Scotland. But the good news is that research, funded through Queensferry’s Race for Life is helping men, women and children to survive the disease.
