Our 13th year sponsoring Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life
Now in our 13th year as Race for Life partner, we are still amazed by the energy, passion and generosity our customers and colleagues bring to Race for Life every year. Together, we’ve raised tens of millions of pounds to fund Cancer Research UK’s life-saving research, fighting all 200 types of cancer.

Our colleagues love to take part each year, and many like Julie Pope (Marketing Assistant) and her sister Paula Jewell (Main Board Director PA), who between them have 48 years’ service working for Tesco, have taken part in Race for Life every year since it began back in 2002!
" Our Mum was diagnosed with breast cancer when she was 50.
When we found out Tesco was sponsoring Race for Life we just had to take part. It was the most fantastic and emotional day. We laughed, we cried, we did it for Mum. We’ve done it every year since, even getting our kids involved. In Mum’s 70th year she joined us and we all “raced” across the finish line together!
We are proud to tell people that Tesco sponsors Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life. We know by working together we can achieve so much more and we hope other women will take part too and help us win the fight against cancer. "
There’s still more work to do, that’s why we want to make 2014 to be even bigger and better, with more of our colleagues taking part and raising more money for Cancer Research UK.
