Thousands Of Women Head For The Scrubs
Charity run to raise money for Cancer Research UK
Three thousand women are set to descend on Wormwood Scrubs this July for the borough’s first ever Race for Life.
Organised by Cancer Research UK, Race for Life is the UK’s largest female-only fundraising event and will see women of all ages take part in either five or 10 kilometre fun-runs around the borough's largest green space.
The Wormwood Scrubs run takes place on Saturday July 10 and Cancer Research UK hope that the event will raise over £250,000 for the charity.
The run is one of 230 Races for Life taking place across the country from May to the end of July.
