A team from Lovetts Solicitors will take part in the Cancer Research Race for Life in July, entering the Guildford Pretty Muddy 5k. The ‘Lovetts Pink Ladies’ (and Danny Zuko) have already begun fundraising for the event and you can view the official team sponsorship page here.
The run will take place at 11am on Saturday 27th July in Stoke Park, Guildford, and is comprised of an obstacle course as well as (you might have guessed) lots of mud! Every two minutes, someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer, and all money raised at the event will be used to fund life-saving research.
“As a company we’re always looking for things we can do in the cause branding and social investment fields,” says Sarb Dhaliwal, Legal Manager for Lovetts. “Race for Life is obviously something that’s just a bit more fun, which a number of members of the team probably would have entered into anyway, and doing it this way allows us to do the activity together as a company. We all know somebody who’s life has been impacted by cancer in some way or another, and while other causes might have become more fashionable in recent years, I think it’s important to keep the awareness and the fundraising up around cancer research.”
As the Cancer Research website outlines, just £5 kits out one of the Charity’s ground-breaking research labs with essential chemicals, £20 buys a new bulb for microscopes, and £400 is the cost of running Cancer Chat for one day.
