Grass Roots Meetings & Events running in aid of Cancer Research UK

Grass Roots Meetings & Events has chosen Cancer Research UK as its supported charity for the forthcoming year with members of the team running in several Race For Life events across the next month.

All three Meetings & Events offices have taken up the challenge with Team Putney completing their 10K challenge in Clapham last weekend. Team Fleet are set to take on their 5K in Basingstoke on the 17th June and Team Marlow will run a 5K in High Wycombe on the 28th June.

A target of £3,300 has been set by the teams and donations can be made at their Just Giving site (

“Cancer Research UK is a charity close to everybody here at Grass Roots so we were really keen to raise some money in the 2015 Race For Life,” comments Amanda Harrison, Grass Roots Meetings & Events’ Marketing Executive. “Team Putney completed our challenge in Clapham on Saturday but both Team Fleet and Marlow are doing their runs later this month. It’s a fantastic cause so please donate what you can towards our target and help us show cancer that hell hath no fury like a woman in pink!”

The fastest 10K by Team Putney was claimed by Dovile Kavaliauskaite with a time of 52 minutes.

Cancer Research UK is the world’s leading charity dedicated to beating cancer through research. Race for Life is a series of women-only events raising money for research into all 200 types of cancer. You can learn more about how to support Cancer Research UK by visiting
