As soon as we heard that this event would not take place in 2017 due to logistical issues, we stepped in and offered to assist with the organizing of it because we knew that Young Lives vs Cancer could not afford to miss out on this huge fundraising opportunity – both from the 10k walk/run and from the family festival that is held afterwards. Not really knowing what we’d let ourselves in for we got stuck in straight away.  Among the things that we managed to organize was the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight fly-past with the Dakota C-47, the Exeter Chiefs inflatable, Premiership Rugby Players appearances and local bands including The Twerzels . For the following year, we knew what to expect and we set out to make the event bigger and better than ever before. Over the years we have expanded the event by adding cake competitions, artistic performers & dancers, small local independent stall holders, emergency services display by the local Police, Fire and Ambulance Services, a wide variety of games and the Town Crier on hand to support participants. Unfortunately, due to Covid19, both 2020 and 2021 events had to be held virtually.  Despite this our entry numbers have grown steadily, and we are looking forward to seeing everyone in person at the 2022 event, for which planning is already underway!
