What You Can Do This December To Help Fight Bowel Cancer

November 03, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 118

For those who remember, England captain and World Cup winner Bobby Moore died of bowel cancer in 1993. The Bobby Moore Fund, founded the same year by the late defender's wife and Cancer Research UK, is a leading charity that raises funds for bowel cancer research and also organises various events to spread mass awareness about the disease. If you admire the legacy Moore left behind for millions of English fans and supporters, surely you can come forward to support the Fund's cause ahead of Christmas and the New Year. Given below are some activities that might grab your attention.

Sign up for Chiswell Street Sports Quiz The Bobby Moore Fund organises different social events as part of its fund- and awareness-raising initiatives. A sports quiz event is slated to be hosted by big names from the world of sports on December 1 at the Brewery, Chiswell Street. It can be a really exciting opportunity for you to test your sports acumen and also to invite some of your friends and colleagues out for a fun evening. There will be 8 rounds of quizzing, followed by auctions for sports memorabilia and once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to rub shoulders with some of the happening names in English football, including Ashley Cole and Matthew Upson. The participation fee for a group of 10 people is £2,500.

Organise a charity tournament The Bobby Moore Fund encourages people to be seen and acknowledged for a cause that might alleviate the suffering of many. If you want to make a difference, host a football tournament in your local area. It can be 6 a side, 11 a side, or 22 a side, depending on your choice. The money you will raise by collecting the registration fees will go into bowel cancer research.

Socialise to raise funds Healthcare management in the UK sometimes takes a beating due to lack of foresight. It seems that most of the responsibilities are confined to bureaucracy and red-tape. Take the initiative by arranging some fundraising events on your own. There are lots of ways you can get the money flowing into the Fund. A fancy attire party or karaoke evening can help you get sponsors for the cause you are promoting. It can also reveal the social side in you, which will be great to begin a purpose-filled life.

Run for health Running is a great exercise to steer clear of obesity risks and further long-term health issues. When you run for a cause as important as cancer awareness and fundraising, you are surely going to find that extra spring in your strides! The Bobby Moore Fund gives you a chance to take part in a marathon or other races. To begin with, you can consider hosting a 5k or a 10k run (the Fund has plans to organise a 10k run in 2012) this December.
