Take on a challenge in 2012 for Marie Curie

WHETHER your goal is to get fit, lose weight, meet new people or do something adventurous in 2012, Marie Curie Cancer Care is offering everyone challenges to fulfil those common New Year’s resolutions.

This week, Marie Curie Cancer Care is launching its programme of events and challenges for the coming year (www.mariecurie.org.uk/challenge) offering people in Cambridgeshire everything from runs, treks, triathlons and cycle rides to swimming, walking and dancing.

If you’re looking to get in shape in 2012, Marie Curie has running events all year round, from marathons to local fun runs, including Milton Keynes Marathon April 2012.

And if your ambition is to see the world this year, the charity’s Great Wall of China Trek September 2012 might be just the way to satisfy your wanderlust.

David Hedges regional events fundraiser for Midlands and Anglia at Marie Curie Cancer Care, said: “New Year’s resolutions often fall by the wayside before January is over, but Marie Curie Cancer Care has events and challenges throughout the year to help you stick to, and achieve, your aims for 2012.

“Whether you want to improve your fitness, have fun or get outdoors more, there’s something for everyone. So why not take up a challenge, fulfil your ambitions and help raise valuable funds for Marie Curie Nurses, who provide free care to people with terminal cancer and other illnesses in their own homes.”
