Now, if any of you know us, we are not natural born runners, however, we are absolutely committed to completing the 5k and helping to support the Race for Life challenge so we can be part of kicking the ar@e out of Cancer!

As part of Bluebird Care Peterborough & Rutland’s commitment to this cause, we have paid for all participants of our team to join the event and have purchased a t-shirt for each of our team members from Cancer Research.  In total pledging more than £150.00 so far to support this.

As a team we have set a modest target of £100 to raise for Cancer Research UK and we are already almost half way there. If you would like to support us by making a donation, please visit our JustGiving page.

Director of Bluebird Care Peterborough & Rutland, Leisa MacKenzie commented:
 
As both care professionals in our business and industry, but also as every day, mothers, sisters, nieces, aunties and friends, we have and are all affected by Cancer and the devastation it can bring. Be it a customer or our own family members, we know its ways. And so, outside of our daily work and our care, we want to help to STOP cancer in its tracks!”
