Volunteers wanted for the Mouth Cancer Foundation!
We are looking for reliable and pro-active individuals to volunteer at some of our MOUTH CANCER FOUNDATION events this year.
The Mouth Cancer 10km Awareness Walk
The FREE annual 10km sponsored walk takes place on 29th September 2013 in Hyde Park, London at 1400. Participants should arrive at 1300. The walk aims to raise the awareness of the symptoms of mouth cancer and 2013 promises to be the biggest walk yet.
The Mouth Cancer 10km Awareness Walks over the past seven years have been hugely successful.
It is hoped that this year’s event will prove to be even more popular and that the crowd will attract the attention of the media to help raise awareness of mouth cancer. Everyone of any age and ability is invited. On the day participants will receive a participant bib, t-shirt and refreshments for the walk as well as a goodie bag with lots of freebies given out at the end of the event. There are also prizes for top fundraisers.
