Cancer Research UK Race for Life

Fri 4 Aug 2017

Derby Parks hosts many events throughout the year, with a host of activities on offer for everybody to enjoy. 

We are very pleased to let you know about some recent successful fundraising events!

Cancer Research UK Race for Life and Pretty Muddy took place on Sat 1 and Sun 2 July at Markeaton Park, with 1,770 and 1,800 participants respectively taking part to raise money for the cancer charity. The sponsored run has helped to raise a whopping £309,000!

Bubble Rush took place on Sat 8 Jul, and attracted 1,200 people to run through colourful bubble stations whilst raising money for charity. The event helped to raise £34,000 for Rainbows Children's Hospice.

What a brilliant reason to celebrate! Thank you to everybody who took part in the three events.
