Join us in nominating the Race for Life creator, Jim Cowan, for a Pride of Britain Lifetime Achievement Award
The Pride of Britain Awards celebrate the achievements of truly remarkable people who make our world a better place. Screened on ITV in November, it is the biggest awards show of its kind on British TV.
The awards are nominated by the public, the winners are from all walks of life, of all ages, and from all over the country. Their achievements are awe-inspiring and a lesson to us all. They say they are ordinary people, but their acts are truly extraordinary.
What better place to help get Jim Cowan the recognition he so richly deserves, not only for creating the Race for Life, but for his many other charity fundraising events and exploits over the years?
The Race for Life has raised over £1/2 Billion since Jim created it, and he has helped raise far more than that, as much as £1 Billion, when you consider the many other fundraising events he has created, managed and supported. From the Poppy Run to the People’s Run 2 Remember, from the Scalextric Challenge to the Rio 3 Peaks Challenge, and from Legends Talking Bollox to the Stamford Bridge to Wembley Walk for Grenfell, and most recently the Ska versus series of gigs. Jim has been involved in more fundraising events than we could possibly list!
Beyond that, he has climbed mountains, tackled the Fan Dance, thrown himself out of planes, walked Hadrian’s Wall non-stop, and more, always going the extra mile for those in need of our support.
Lots of people deserve to receive recognition through a Pride of Britain Award but surely there are few more deserving than Jim?
And, while Cancer Research UK continue refusing to do the right thing and recognise him for creating the Race for Life, a Pride of Britain award would bring some recognition for his truly remarkable achievements.
