Bennett Griffin Get Pretty Muddy for Cancer Research
On Saturday 4th July 2015 seven ladies from Bennett Griffin, known as the Bennett Griffin Swampies, will be getting muddy to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
The Pretty Muddy race is an event whereby women of any ability can climb, jog and walk a 5km muddy obstacle course and the Bennett Griffin Swampies will be taking on the course at Stanmer Park in Brighton.
It is set to be a very messy affair but all of the ladies are determined to make it to the end, battling obstacles and lots of mud along the way, all in the name of charity.
Most people are aware of the work done by Cancer Research UK and what a fantastic charity it is. In the 1970’s only a quarter of people diagnosed with cancer survived, today – thanks to the research undertaken by charities such as Cancer Research UK – more people are beating cancer than ever before, with more than half of those diagnosed surviving for at least ten years.
New figures release this year show that the death rates for breast, bowel, lung and prostate cancer combined have fallen by almost a third in the last 20 years, but there is always more work and research to be done to improve these figures further.

The Bennett Griffin Swampies have done the hard part and signed up to the challenge of the Pretty Muddy course and they would be extremely grateful for any donations to show your support, no matter how small!
