Plea to return Race cash

A SCARBOROUGH fundraiser is calling on women who took part in Race for Life to make every step count – by returning their sponsorship money as soon as possible.

Claire Wase, Race for Life Event Manager for Scarborough, said: “We are really grateful to the thousands of women who walked, jogged and ran Race for Life in Scarborough. Their spirit and determination created an amazing atmosphere on the day as they came together for one cause – to help beat cancer.”

Last year, just under half the women who took part in Race for Life didn’t return any sponsorship money. Many don’t realise that their entry fee only covers the cost of the event.

Mrs Wase said: “We want to say a heart-felt thanks to everyone who took part or supported our participants, as well as the wonderful volunteers.”
