Welcome to Mad March Hare
Mad March Hare helping to make a difference.
We are delighted that 24th March 2019 saw our 12th Mad March Hare event.
It is recognised that being in good health can help prevent cancer and other illness. So, Mad March Hare is a great starting point for those looking to improve their exercise routine. We’ve had many stories of people who have started their journey to fitness by doing the Mad March Hare. Some of them going on to take part in Half or even Full Marathons.
Raising funds for Breast Cancer Now is very important to us. By 2018, our event had raised over £100,000 and we are delighted to announce our 2019 fundraising total for Breast Cancer Now is £10,500. With running costs in the region of £3,000, we work all year round to raise the funds needed to run our event. With the additional support of our generous sponsors we can ensure we give 100% of the entry fees to Breast Cancer Now.
Around 350 men and over 55,000 women are diagnosed with Breast Cancer each year in the UK. Thanks to research, more people are surviving breast cancer than ever before. Yet there are still nearly 1,000 women who die of breast cancer every month in the UK and around 80 men each year.
You may know someone who is fighting breast cancer and therefore your taking part in Mad March Hare is a positive way to help. Every penny raised, from entry fees and your personal sponsorship, will go to help fund essential research.
Hopefully we will see you again in 2020 and whether that will be your first opportunity to take part, you are a returning Mad March Hare eventeer or one of our vital volunteers you’ll be guaranteed a great experience.
