Judith Banks of Saxthorpe and Angela Hunter of Sheringham decided to put on the event walk in memory of their late husbands, Revd Michael Banks and Leigh Hunter, who died from rare forms of cancer.
They hope to raise £3,000 for life-saving research to help men, women and children in Norfolk and across the UK.
Spring March for Cancer Charities will take place on Saturday 9 March, starting at 11.30 am. There will be three routes: 7 km, 3 km and a shorter route for wheelchair or disabled participants.
The event is sponsored by Tesco and Corpusty Stores & Post Office.
The adult £10 online entry fee (£12 on the day), £5 for children, includes car parking on Four Acre Field (signage will be in place), bottled water, and a snack or homemade cake. Book your entry HERE
Laura Holland, Cancer Research UK’s fundraising manager for Norfolk, said: “We are absolutely delighted that Angela and Judith have decided to hold such a lovely event to raise vital funds for Cancer Research UK.
“They have organised the walk and everything around it, and I am sure it will be fabulous but highly emotional for everyone who takes part. We can’t thank them enough for their support and want to wish them the very best on the day.
“Cancer Research UK has made enormous progress in the fight against cancer. However, we have only been able to do this thanks to the dedication and commitment of our volunteers and supporters without whom we would not be able to fund our research.”
