The Weekend to End Breast Cancer benefiting the Alberta Cancer Foundation

60km that can change the world – July 25-27, 2008

“All over Alberta, The Weekend is helping breast cancer patients get the care they need to become breast cancer survivors. Money raised by a rapidly growing number of Walkers is funding advanced research that yields life-saving new treatments. Of course, a cure is the ultimate victory. But with every dollar we raise, with every person that gets a second chance at life, and with every step we take who shows we believe we can change the world, we are on The Road to Victory.”

The Great City Race is upon London once more as the boys and girls from the City turn out to do some seriously competitive running. Breakthrough Breast Cancer is the official charity of the Great City Race 2008 and you can do even more to raise money for their worthy cause than paying your registration fee. Pick up a fundraising pack and see how much more you can do in the battle against breast cancer in the UK.”

The Great City Race, a 5K race, takes place at 7:15pm on Thursday 17th July 2008.
