BECOME AN AMBASSADOR FOR CRUK’S NEW 10K RACE SERIES
CRUK are the world’s leading charity dedicated to beating cancer through research. They’ve saved millions of lives by discovering new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, and survival rates have doubled over the past 40 years. Every step they make towards beating cancer relies on every pound donated. They receive no Government funding for their research, so their life-saving work is only possible thanks to people who give their time or money. A big part of their fundraising comes from events that they put on or people take part in to raise money. The most well known of these is Race For Life. Over the past 20 years, more than 8 million women have taken part raising over £547 million.
CRUK are continuously coming up with new events to engage more new people with CRUK, and the latest is Tough 10.
Tough 10 is a brand new series of epic 10k runs. No obstacles – this is the chance to take on some of the UK’s toughest terrain. With three levels of toughness available, these are a great running challenge with 10 events taking place at iconic venues across the UK. Locations include: Peak District, London, Edinburgh, Nottingham, Chilterns, Cheshire, Leeds, Staffordshire, Surrey and South Wales.
ABOUT THE AMBASSADOR ROLE
CRUK are looking for 10 Ambassadors to help them raise awareness of and encourage more people to enter the Tough 10 events this Autumn, most of which take part in November. They will look to their Ambassadors to take part in at least one event, and to create content both for their own channels and for CRUK’s (before, during and after an event) to help recruit new participants to the local events. CRUK want Ambassadors to understand their work and be able to talk confidently about it to encourage people to take part, and be rewarded for the important role they will be taking to help them raise more money to Beat Cancer Sooner.
