Cancer Research UK – Hillingdon Race For Life Volunteer

Want to make a real change that only takes a few hours of your time?

The Race for Life team at Cancer Research UK can offer you that chance. We are aiming to raise over £48, a target made only possible by amazing individuals supporting participants on the day.

Put your hands to constructing the sit by building marquees, support participants by manning obstacles and marshalling the course, or start the celebrations at the finish line by handing out medals.

A few moments of your time really makes a difference to participants on the day to help beat cancer sooner together.

The Hillingdon Race for Life 5k will be on Sunday 17th June at Hillingdon House Farm.
