Racing to raise funds

Race for Life

Race for Life comes hot on the heels of the London Marathon and is taking part all over the UK to raise funds for Cancer Research UK. These sponsored running events are either 5 or 10 km (just over either 3 or 6 miles in old money) and are really sociable, non-pressurised and sponsored by AXA PPP.

You do have to be a bit fit and healthy though, so if you are thinking or know of anyone thinking of taking part this year then you might like to visit Race for Life sponsor AXA PPP‘s site which offers a whole host information and tips. You can also increase any sponsorship money by entering into their weekly prize draws. Enter this competition every Friday until the beginning of August and you could win £100 if you are an individual runner, or £200 for an AXA PPP healthcare member (either your own or part of a corporate scheme). All you need to do is raise at least £50 in sponsorship and hold a Just Giving Page.

The ‘be healthy’ section of the AXA PPP website also has great training tips and recipe ideas for runners and those just wanting to get into good habits and runners of all experience levels can ask important questions and benefit from AXA PPP expert healthcare knowledge by taking part in a live chat dedicated to running on the 26th April.

Live chat details

* Health experts will be available to ask about getting started with running, training for every level, diet and nutrition for runners, taking care of injuries and more.

* After the live chat ends, there is plenty more health and fitness content available to help runners on the ‘be healthy’ section of the AXA PPP website, including training guides and healthy recipes.

The experts lined up for the live chat are:
10am – 12 noon – AXA ICAS, sports and exercise science expert John Crudington, who has previously worked as a personal trainer, fitness tutor and physiologist.
2pm – 4pm – Personal trainer Lucy Wydham-Read, who has spent the last ten years helping people improve their fitness – even the odd celebrity, and at one point an entire football team!
5pm – 7pm – Nutritionist, Dr Sarah Schenker, who is regularly quoted in the national press and is one of the most influential nutritionists in the UK.

Join in the fun and get exclusive updates on special events at the races by joining AXA PPP on Facebook and/or Twitter page today.
