Race for Life: We walk all over cancer in running spikes
Posted by Deadly Knitshade on March 15, 2009
S&B Londoners have always thought that cancer was really rubbish. We’ve been helping battle it since day one with our knits. There was our London Lion Scarf and our Blanket for Breast Cancer. And now we’re Racing for Life because cancer just can’t seem to take the hint.
Tina ‘Wickedwoollywitch’ Bragaglia is doing the Race for Life (bright red stick and all) in memory of her brother. You can see her sponsor page here. We thought that was rather fabulous and couldn’t let her race alone.
So inspired by Tina, and other teams such as Socktopus and IKnit , we at S&B London are joining in Race for Life too. We’re joining the event on the 6th of May at 7pm in Battersea Park (so no time off work or weekends taken up required).
Join Team S&B London
The race is on the 6th of May at 7pm in Battersea Park. We’d love you to join us whether you help us raise a little or a lot.
To sign up just drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll let you know how to sign up and we’ll add you to the team.
We’ll be racing in a group at a walking pace to make sure some of us less gazelle-like members don’t walk on their own.
