Race for Life 2013 

The Isle of Wight Race for Life is the only race on the Island to raise vital money for Cancer Research UK. The race is a 5km course, where women can walk or run at a pace that suits them whilst raising money for Cancer Research UK. 2013 will be the 13th year that this successful event will have been held on the Island. 

Since Race for Life began an incredible six million participants across the UK have raised over £457 million to fund the work of over 4,000 researchers, doctors and nurses dedicated to helping more people beat cancer.

The money will go towards the funding of essential research work into the treatment and prevention of cancer, as well as providing care for those touched by cancer and their families.
