A group of female Notts fans have signed up to take part in this year’s Race for Life to raise vital funds for Cancer Research, treatment and support, and it is not too late to join them.
15 ladies including club director Aileen Trew and Lifeline co-ordinator Lynn Lawson have already put their name down and now Notts supporter and organiser Lisa Black is encouraging for more fans to sign up and raise further funds.
Kopite Lisa told the official site: “A group has been set up for the event called NCFC-Pink-ladies and if any female Notts fans and their friends want to join the group they can register on the Race for Life website.
“Doing the Race for Life raises vital funds for the fight against beating cancer and developing a cure.
“I have personally been touched by the effects of cancer, losing family and friends to it.
“This is a way for us to do something positive, celebrate those that beat it and remember those that didn't.
“This year, having the opportunity to wear the pink Notts shirt is an added
bonus and an opportunity for us ladies to get involved in showing a community spirit for the club too.
“We started with a very modest target of only £100 because we weren't sure how many would join us.
“We have already broken that target by 100 per cent with online donations and I know many have already filled their sponsor sheets, so the challenge is to actually just raise as much as we can.”
The race takes part on Nottingham Trent Embankment at 10.30am on 9 June 2013, but feel free to join the group outside the Meadow Lane gates at 9.30am and walk over to the starting line.
