UKDA team enter Race for Life

Article dated: 12 May 2006

The UK Data Archive has entered a team in this year's Race for Life at the University of Essex, raising funds for Cancer Research.

This is the thirteenth year of the Race for Life but the first for the UKDA team and what a team! Fighting their way to the start line on 16 July will be Melanie Wright, Hilary Beedham, Pam Miller, Julie Missen and Sue Cadogan with two honorary UKDA team members; Lauren Miller and Gail Buckley.

A training plan has been formalised and is about to be actioned (now the rain has stopped), and we all have new training shoes.

We're not expecting to blaze a trail around the campus course because we care about the environment and our new shoes but we are committed to taking part in the event, completing the 5km and to raising vast amounts of money for the cause. If you would like to sponsor us, please visit the web page Sponsor UKDA Race for Life team.
