Spread the love

Whether your goal is to get fit, lose weight, meet new people or do something adventurous in 2011, Marie Curie Cancer Care is offering 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, Rise to the Challenge, offering everything from runs, treks, triathlons and cycle rides to swimming, walking and dancing.

If you’re looking to get in shape in 2011, Marie Curie has nationwide running events all year round, from marathons to local fun runs. And if your ambition is to see the world this year, the charity’s South African Cycle Challenge along the stunning Garden Route might be just the way to satisfy your wanderlust.

Fabian French, Director of Fundraising 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 2011. 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.”
