Race for Life 2013


Back in 2011 I ran the Race for Life on my own… This year I’m back and Boo (6) is joining me too after begging me so much! I’m really excited to be doing this with Boo and she is really looking forward to it and I think it’s great for her to experience things like this and for her to understand there are people/causes out there that need our help!

5k is an awful long way for a 6 year old and I know that she won’t be able to run it all; she will want to as she is such a determined little madam and very competitive too! As it has ‘race’ in the title she obviously wants to win! We are trying to raise as much money as possible for Cancer Research so we would love it if you could sponsor us! Every penny really does count! Our goal this year is £500 and thanks to Brioche Pasquier we are already over half way there!

Please please please if you can afford anything at all sponsor us today… Boo & myself will be so very thankful for your support :O)

If you sponsor me and you are a business/blogger then please feel free to send me ( your logo/badge and I will add it to my sponsors page for 6 months to say thank you for your support 🙂

Brioche Pasquier UK, French Family Bakers since 1936, this week launched its first ever UK fundraising campaign to support Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life. The new champion sponsor of Race for Life hopes to raise £15,000 to help fund vital research to beat over 200 types of cancer, as well as offering up to £10,000 worth of free child entry vouchers in the lead-up to race days throughout the UK.

The first of the promotions, ‘Run with Your Mum’ packs, hit shelves recently in leading supermarkets and will be included on PITCH, the filled brioche range. The initiative is to encourage up to 1,000 mums to run with their children by covering the £10 entry fee for the child.


The second promotion, ‘Raise Some Dough’, which runs throughout June and July across both the PITCH and Traditional products (pain au lait and pain au chocolat), gives customers the opportunity to win donations of up to £100 to send to friends or family taking part in a Race for Life event through their JustGiving page – or alternatively they can simply donate to the Brioche Pasquier Race for Life team.

At over 200 Race for Life events this summer, Brioche Pasquier UK will also be rewarding every participant crossing the finish line with a sample from PITCH, its filled brioche range. In addition, Brioche Pasquier will be hosting a variety of exciting experiential activities across 10 events, enhancing the overall race day experience for participants and their families.
