Run for Cancer Research
This summer, Cork City will host its second marathon since 1986 on bankholiday Monday, June 2nd 2008. Cork Cancer Research Centre needs yoursupport and is looking for you to run on their behalf in the Cork CityMarathon.
If you are already training and haven't decided what charity to run for, please run for cancer research. If you are not a marathon runner but wouldlike to run, then there is a team relay event where runners of all distancescan take part in the marathon without having to complete the full 26.2miles.
The team relay is for teams of between 2 and 5 members. The marathon course will be divided into 5 stages, allowing 5 team members to take a stage each. So why not join up with some friends or colleagues or relatives and share the stages of the marathon course and run for cancer research.
The Cork Cancer Research Centre, with labs based within the Mercy UniversityHospital and within UCC, is actively bringing new treatments to cancer patients and aims to combat cancer by developing improved therapies for detection, treatment and prevention.
Join the fight against cancer and make a difference today - help us to influence the future. For your sponsorship pack including free t-shirt, phone Ann on 021 463 6612
. You will be aiding research into cancer's prevention and treatment. For further information onCork Cancer Research Centre, visit
