Race for Life 2017

Partner: Cancer Research UK's Race for Life July 2017
Partner type: Community Group
Project category: Sporting Partnerships

Cancer Research UK's Race for Life took place in July 2017 and Wycombe Abbey invited the runners to go round the large site. Over 1,100 women took part in the event, 150 of which took on the new 10k challenge that the school grounds enabled them to provide for the first time. There was lovely feedback from participants who thoroughly enjoyed seeing a part of the town that they had not seen before.

The donations so far have already raised £76,000, with £10,000 of this just from the 10k participants. Cancer Research UK said that this 'is entirely down to the school's generosity'.

We look forward to being able to work with them again in the future.
