Participants in Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life will get off to a flying start with donations from official sponsor, skincare brand Vaseline.


Race for Life is an amazing series of women-only non-competitive 5k events and Vaseline is supporting participants by topping up their fundraising. After entering Race for Life, participants can register their Unique Reference Number at and the skincare brand will donate £5 to Cancer Research UK on your behalf until the whopping target of £10,000 is hit – so be quick!


Having cared for skin for over 145 years, Vaseline is taking its caring side to a new level by joining together with Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life event series.  Prior to the events at the following 10 locations, limbs will be loosened with a unique ‘Vaseline Never Stop Bop’ warm up, whilst a Vaseline chill-out lounge complete with complimentary massages will give runners a well-earned rest:


  • Norwich, 19/05/12
  • London Hyde Park, 27/05/12
  • Glasgow, 03/06/12

Vaseline Brand Manager Lauren Brooking comments, “We’re very proud to be sponsoring Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life this year and being part of the biggest fight against cancer.  We hope our £5 donation to runners will   help kick-start their fundraising efforts.  It’s guaranteed to be a fun and memorable day.”


Don’t forget that Vaseline is the multi-tasking essential when it comes to training and the big day itself:


  • Scared about getting those legs out?  Get skin race-ready with Vaseline Essential Moisture, RRP £2.75 for 200ml.  Combining pure oat extracts and Stratys-3 technology, the new formulation absorbs quickly for soft, healthy looking skin
  • Use Vaseline Petroleum Jelly, RRP £1.39 for 50ml, to prevent chafing and blisters, especially when breaking in those new trainers!
