WOMEN who took part in Leigh’s Race For Life are being urged to collect and return their sponsorship money.

More than 1,700 participants turned out to Pennington Flash to do the 5k run for Cancer Research UK and now organisers are saying a heart-felt thanks to everyone who took part. Debbie McConnell, Race for Life event manager for Leigh, said: “We have had a fantastic Race for Life 2011 season, especially at Pennington Flash. The event was full again this year and so far we have raised more than £82,000 in sponsorship. We still have another £5,000 to go to hit this year’s target which would be an amazing achievement.”

There are three ways to return sponsorship money: Online at www.raceforlife.org; phone 0871 641 1111 or send a cheque, payable to Cancer Research UK, to Race for Life, PO Box 442, Northampton, NN3 6UU.
