Leading Dorset law firm Coles Miller Solicitors is backing the battle against cancer by supporting Race for Life in Bournemouth and Poole for the second year running.
Eleven Coles Miller staff will be running with 12 more acting as volunteer race marshals following last year’s successful fundraising efforts.
Last year Coles Miller raised £1,100 for Cancer Research UK. Staff are hoping to beat that figure this year.
Senior Partner Roger Leedham said: “Supporting the Race for Life means a great deal to us because of all the people we know whose lives have been touched by cancer.
“Race for Life is a series of hugely successful community events that bring everyone together to raise funds for an incredibly important cause.
“We’re delighted to be playing our part by supporting these events and cheering on all the runners and volunteers as they join forces to help fund lifesaving medical research,” he added.
This year’s Race for Life events in Bournemouth and Poole will be held on:
- Sunday June 10 2018 (11am), The Seafront, Bournemouth – 5k and 10k events
- Saturday June 16 June 2018 (from 10.30am), Baiter Park, Catalina Drive, Poole – Pretty Muddy (5k)
- Sunday June 17 2018 (11am), Baiter Park, Catalina Drive, Poole – 5k and 10k events.
Race for Life participants can choose to walk, jog or run around the course.
Whether they’re planning a 5k amble with friends, a 10k or a mud-splattered Pretty Muddy, every step participants take together will help to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured. Every day, around 90 people are diagnosed with cancer in the South West.
