Slimming World Does Race For Life Sat 26th @ Hillsborough Arena

Recommended Posts

This Saturday (26th July) all of the North West Sheffield Slimming World groups, including our very own Crookes and Crosspool groups, are getting together to get active and raise some money for Cancer Research UK by holding the first ever 'Slimming World Does Race For Life' at Hillsborough Arena,


The event is open to everyone to take part Men, women and children) and there is no sign up fee. Some people are gathering sponsorship from friends and family, while others will make a donation on the day.


How far they go is up to them, whether opting to walk one lap with babies in pushchairs or to push themselves to do the standard 'Race For Life' distance of 5K (a total of 11 laps around the football and rugby pitches), the choice is totally up to them.


It's all about us getting together as a community to get active and raise some money for Cancer Research UK, a charity which, unfortunatley, touches many of our hearts.


People are encouraged to arrive from 1pm onwards, with a view to the race being offically started at 2pm by our local Councillor Geoff Smith who has himself lost over an amazing 3.5 stone with Slimming World.


There will be an amazing raffle with over 30 prizes all donated from Sheffield based businesses including, tickets to see Sheffield Eagles (who are set to make an appearance on the day), day passes to Monkey Bizness, Paradise Island and Hollywood Bowl and a number meals for two at various pubs and restaurants and the donations are still coming in.


So, grab your hats and suncream and make your way to Hillsborough arena for an afternoon of fun with all the family and all in the name of Cancer Research UK
