Race For Life

Race for Life is a series of fundraising events for women only, organised by British charity Cancer Research UK. They involve running, jogging or walking a 5-kilometre course and raising sponsorship for doing so.The money raised funds cancer research in all 200 types of cancer, however, none of the money from the entry fee (£14.99 for adults and £10 for children in 2012) actually benefits Cancer Research UK, only the additional sponsorship raised by participants. Following complaints from John Taylor regarding the gender exclusivity of the Race for Life events, the 5K Run for Moore was launched.
