BRIDGWATER and District Friends of Cancer Research UK are calling on families and local runners to join them at the Family 5k Fun Run and Bridgwater Half Marathon.

The event, now in its third year, will start from Morganians Rugby Club, Chedzoy Lane, on Sunday,
September 7, and the group is encouraging people from all over the South West to register and raise money for the charity.

Dawn Harrison, Cancer Research UK area volunteer manager for Devon and Somerset, said: “We’re
delighted that Bridgwater and District Friends have taken on this challenge again this year. It’s thanks to support like this that Cancer Research UK’s doctors, nurses and scientists are able to go on making
progress in the fight against cancer.

“We are keen to hear from anyone who has secured their own place in the 5K Fun Run or Bridgwater Half Marathon but hasn’t chosen a charity to run for yet. Please join the Cancer Research UK team and help raise money for vital research.”
