Would you like to support cancer research UK? Why not enter the Adidas Women’s 5k Challenge fun run? Every year this event raises thousands of pounds for cancer research in the UK. This year the 5k Challenge fun run is taking place on September 5 in Hyde Park, London, Birmingham and Liverpool.

It has become a key event for cancer research fundraising in recent years, bringing together thousands of women each year to run, jog or walk 5k and raise money to beat cancer.

You can sign up and join the Adidas Women’s 5k Challenge here. It doesn’t matter how you do the 5k, just as long as you turn up on the day!

Why not consider running in support of Breakthrough Breast Cancer? It is the UK’s leading breast cancer charity. Its dedicated staff campaign tirelessly to fight breast cancer through research and education. Breakthrough Breast Cancer partnered with the Institute of Cancer Research to set up the UK’s first dedicated breast cancer research centre.

When you sign up and take on Adidas’ challenge, £5 of your registration fee will go straight to charity. On top of this, you can gather sponsorship from friends and family. Even better, why not encourage your female friends and family to participate?!

As well as sponsoring the event, Adidas have, for the second year running, developed a pink ribbon range of sports clothing. For every item sold, 10% goes straight to charity. So why not get over to a JJB Sports outlet and stock up on running gear?

It's encouraging to know that the money raised each year is making a big difference to real people all over the country. Since 1994 the death rates for ovarian cancer have dropped by about 10% and cervical cancer deaths have decreased by 40%. Breast cancer has decreased by about a fifth over the past 10 years.

To support the fantastic work of Breakthrough Breast Cancer, sign up for Adidas Women’s 5k Challenge today here.
