Cancer Research Pretty Muddy, 6th July 2019

  • Cancer is happening right now, which is why we're taking part in a Race for Life to raise money and save lives.
  • 1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Every single pound donated makes a difference to Cancer Research UK’s groundbreaking work.
  • Cancer survival rates have doubled over the past 40 years. Consistent progress is being made but improvements to technology and ground-breaking work offer new opportunities to find different ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer and improve survival rates even further. Help Cancer Research UK improve results even faster.
  • 'Pretty Muddy 5k' is a muddy obstacle course that everyone, no matter their ability, can take part in!
  • 11 members of The Avenue team will be taking part in this event in Portsmouth
  • To donate any amount at all (....every £1 helps:) please visit
