Netball Scotland continue their support of Cancer Research UK

12th March 2019

We are excited to announce our continued partnership with Cancer Research UK this year to support their ‘Race For Life’ events across Scotland.  With events from Glasgow and Edinburgh, to Stirling and Fife, there is sure to be a Race For Life event for you! And the best part, you don’t have to be an athlete, Race for Life is full of everyday people doing an extraordinary thing – helping to beat cancer. You can run, jog or walk 5K, push yourself with a 10K, or take on the Pretty Muddy obstacle course.

Cancer Research UK’s Race For Life

As part of our continued support of Cancer Research UK we here at Netball Scotland want to really spread the word about the upcoming Race for Life events as far and wide as we can. To do this, we are hosting another #NSPlayItPink week starting on the 7th of April and we need as many of you as possible to take up the challenge.

How to Get Involved – Play it Pink Week

From the 7th-13th April we’re looking for teams and clubs to wear pink items of clothing during training and matches and then shout about your support on social media under the hashtag #NSPlayitPink. Your pink items can really be anything from t-shirts and shorts to tutus and wigs, the more creative the better. Remember, we will be promoting your photos and videos across our socials again this year, along with Race for Life team, so please be sure to tag @netballscotland and @raceforlife and use the hashtag #NSPlayitPink and #EveryBodyForNetball so we can see all your fantastic pink outfits.

As a thank you for taking part in the Play it Pink week, the Race for Life team have given us an exclusive discount that entitles all Netball Scotland members 30% off the entry fees to Race for Life and Pretty Muddy events. Our exclusive code will be emailed to all active members.

How to Get Involved – Create a Group 

What’s more, you can also sign up your club (and their friends and family) for a Race for Life event near you by creating a group. All you have to do is:

  1. Find the event you want to take part in.
  2. Sign up friends or family. You will need their email address, home address and date of birth. You can register up to 10 adults at one time (including yourself).
  3. Select the fundraising target for either the whole group or per each group member.
  4. After payment, select the option to ‘create a group’.
  5. Finally, choose a group name. (this will go on your running number)

And that’s it! Your members can also add themselves to your group after signing up by selecting the option to ‘join a group’, from there, they can search for your group and click ‘Join this group.’ That’s it – all you have to do now is start fundraising!

As another thank you for taking part in Race for Life events, Netball Scotland would like to offer the BIGGEST group a special prize as a thank you for all your fundraising efforts. We are offering a 2019 Vitality Netball World Cup netball signed by the Scottish Thistles and V.I.P tickets to one of next seasons Strathclyde Sirens Matches.

So, what are you waiting for?
