The run will be a 5K Charity Fun Run around the campus. This run is designed to be a fun and relaxed event with the aim of raising awareness and funds for our chosen charity. You can run or walk its up to you! It is open to anybody who wishes to participate, not just students! However we do request that you wear purple as much as possible to coordinate with the charity colours.
The race will be followed by a participant Thank You party at the Sports Centre with light refreshments provided and spot prizes given out.
Our chosen charity “Fight on for Annie’ is a fund set up to raise money for both Pancreatic Cancer UK & Pancreatic Cancer Action UK in memory of one of our event team members mum Anne O’Neill. Around 8,800 people are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in the UK each year, making it the 11th most common cancer. Cancer of the pancreas is difficult to treat. It rarely causes any symptoms in the early stages, so it’s often not detected until the cancer is fairly advanced. Pancreatic cancer is the fifth most common cause of cancer death in the Uk, around 8,700 people in the UK died from pancreatic cancer in 2014, nearly 24 people a day. Only 3% of pancreatic cancer patients survive the disease for five years or more. Meaning raising money for research is so important to help find a cure for this awful disease. Pancreatic Cancer UK is the only national charity fighting pancreatic cancer on all fronts from Support, Information to Campaigning and Research.
