Calling all Cirencester fundraisers - leap into action for breast cancer research

Breast Cancer Campaign are encouraging people from Cirencester to take part in a skydive at Cirencester Airfield on the weekend of the 14 / 15 May 2011. Freefalling through the clouds at 120mph is a once in a lifetime experience, but it’s also a perfect opportunity to help the 47,700 women and 340 men that are diagnosed with breast cancer every year. So sign up now and help to make a difference! Jumps take place all year round at airfields across the UK. Solo jumps are available to satisfy all those with a daring streak, along with tandem jumps for anyone that’s not quite ready to go it alone. Sponsorship totals start at £395 but vary depending on which jump you choose. Kelly Walton, Breast Cancer Campaign’s Events Executive, said “By taking part in a sponsored skydive you’ll be signing up to a once in a lifetime experience. All of the money raised from each jump goes towards funding innovative world-class research and we hope that this year we can get more people than ever to take the plunge and help us beat breast cancer.” If you would like to take part in a skydive for Breast Cancer Campaign, or for more information about any of the charity’s fundraising events, please call 0207 749 4114, email skydives@breastcancercampaign.org or visit www.breastcancercampaign.org ENDS Notes to editors • Breast Cancer Campaign aims to beat breast cancer by funding innovative world-class research to understand how breast cancer develops, leading to improved diagnosis, treatment, prevention and cure • Currently it supports 101 research projects, worth almost £17.3 million in 34 centres of excellence across the UK and Ireland. • Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK and accounts for nearly one in three of all cancers in women • In the UK, over 48,000 new cases of breast cancer are diagnosed each year - that’s over 130 a day • Visit www.breastcancercampaign.org • Read Chief Executive Pamela Goldberg’s blog http://pamelagoldbergblog.blogspot.com/ • Visit Breast Cancer Campaign on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/breastcancercampaign • Visit Breast Cancer Campaign on Twitter http://twitter.com/BCCampaign
