Pelican’s festive fun run on course to be a Breeze

Festive fun runners will be doing the Jingle Bell Rock around Basingstoke as The Breeze, the local radio station for Basingstoke, teams up with Pelican Cancer Foundation to raise funds for the charity.

The Breeze will be playing all the festive feel-good favourites to get hundreds of jolly Santas under starter’s orders for a 5km or 2.5km fun run on Sunday, December 10, 2017, in the town’s War Memorial Park.

The Breeze presenters will be leading the warm-up, getting the run under way and keeping the yuletide fun going until all the Santas have crossed the finish line!

Men, women and children, from the age of six upwards, are invited to get involved – all runners will receive a fabulous Santa suit to wear around the course and a medal for taking part.

It’s the first festive fun run to be held in Basingstoke for more than five years and all profits will go towards funding Pelican’s vital work funding clinical research into advancing precision surgery in the treatment of bowel, liver, bladder and prostate cancers.

Earlybird discount is available for fun runners who sign up before Friday 29 September 2017 – children (age 6-16) cost just £7.50 (normally £10) and adults pay £10 (normally £15).

All participants are asked to aim to raise £50 to go towards the work of Pelican Cancer Foundation.

“Teaming up with The Breeze for our Festive Fun Run is really exciting,” said Sarah Crane, chief executive at Pelican Cancer Foundation.

“There will be plenty of Christmas cheer and music from The Breeze to make sure everybody stays on track around the course - making the event one of the highlights of the town’s seasonal calendar.

“Pelican is proud to bring the festive fun run to the local community, so please sign up now – either individually, with family and friends, or in a team. You will be supporting our charity while earning those extra mince pies this Christmas!”

The Breeze said: “We couldn’t be happier to be supporting the Pelican Cancer Foundation Festive Fun Run.

“What better way to kick off the festive season than by coming together with family and friends for such an amazing cause. Tune into The Breeze Basingstoke on 107.6fm to keep up-to-date with all the news on the day and we look forward to seeing everyone there.”
