What can I do? Participate.

Participate in the Bedford 5k to Beat Lung Cancer. Each runner or walker has a personal story driving them to tackle the course. Every volunteer at the finish line or on the course has a stake in the outcome. Every milestone marker along the route tells a tale of support and loss and hope. The very best thing you can do – is be in the park on race day. Participate in whatever capacity feels right to you.

Walk or run

Whether you tackle the 500m or the 5k, it’s a rewarding experience on a great route that fun to walk or run.

Volunteer to help

We have lots of jobs that need doing. We have new people help out every year, and of course, some familiar faces.
