The ESP Dance crew are set to show cancer who’s boss and teach Peterborough ladies how to do the ‘Cancer Slam’ at the launch of this year’s Race for Life.
They’ll be performing at Serpentine Green Shopping Centre on Sunday May 11 between 11am and 2pm as they help recruit ladies for the two local events – Sunday June 1 at Burghley House in Stamford and Tuesday July 8 at Ferry Meadows in Peterborough.
Capturing the energy and spirit of the women-only event series, the Cancer Slam is designed to bring their indescribable power and emotion to life. It also embodies the passion and determination behind Race for Life’s rallying cry ‘Cancer, we’re coming to get you’.
Organisers hope the Cancer Slam will stop Peterborough shoppers in their tracks and motivate local mums, grans, daughters, sisters and friends to sign-up for Race for Life on the spot.
The Big Slimming World Clothes Throw also culminates that weekend – a nationwide fundraising drive that sees Slimming World members across the UK donating clothes to Cancer Research UK, Slimming World’s Charity Partner for 2014. Each bag of clothes could raise up to £25.
This will be taking place between May 5 – 12, with the finale finishing off at the Serpentine Green Shopping Centre on Sunday May 11 with the Race for Life launch event.
The ESP Dance Crew will also be performing the Cancer Slam as part of the rousing warm-up at the local Race for Life events. A video showing how to do the dance steps is available online so you can have a practice.
ESP’s dance instructor Nicole, said – “We’re so excited about taking part in the Cancer Slam and we’ve had a great time learning the routine. We hope we can inspire women to join in the fun and enter their local Race for Life event.
“Cancer touches so many of us, including members of our group. That’s why we want to do everything we can to motivate women to power up the pink and show cancer who’s boss.”
Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life, in partnership with Tesco, is an inspiring women-only series of 5k, 10k and Pretty Muddy events which raises millions of pounds every year to help beat cancer sooner.
So women of all shapes and sizes are needed to join together and give cancer the boot by entering.
Julie Braithwaite Cancer Research UK’s Peterborough Event Manager says –“Race for Life is non-competitive. It doesn’t matter how fit or fast you are. Taking part is about joining together against a disease that affects all of us. You can walk, run or dance, so we urge local ladies to take the first step by signing up today.”
