Two days ago we posted an article which, once again, highlighted the hypocrisy of Cancer Research UK. The article pointed out their hypocrisy in asking people to nominate their Race for Life hero while, for the last 25 years, they have refused to give the event’s creator, Jim Cowan, any recognition at all.
We suggested that without Jim the near £1 Billion raised through the event would never have been possible. We highlighted the organisation’s hypocrisy and how they have refused to distance themselves from the fraudulent activities of Jill MacRae, the employee who faked creating the event herself. We pointed out their campaign to whitewash Jim’s name from the event’s history.
We then asked you to speak against the hypocrisy, the lack of integrity, and nominate Jim Cowan as your Race for Life hero. To nominate the person without whom none of it would have happened.
And, lots of you did. Thank you.
And, guess what? Cancer Research UK and the Race for Life have again highlighted their hypocrisy and their lacking integrity. On both Twitter and on Facebook, those nominating anyone other than Jim have been asked to email their nomination in while those nominating Jim have been ignored (see screen grab examples below).
It is an incredible demonstration of low integrity, even of ballot rigging. It is a classic example of hypocrisy.
They would like a Race for Life hero. Just not one they are trying to ignore and remove from the history of the event he created.
And, if we can’t trust Cancer Research UK’s integrity on this issue, why should we trust them on any other; such as with our money?
Don’t take our word for it. You can check on their Twitter post and responses here: https://twitter.com/raceforlife/status/1138041357308694528

Please continue to help us in ensuring Jim Cowan is not whitewashed from the history of the Race for Life and that he finally gets the recognition he so richly deserves. Please continue to let Race for Life and Cancer Research UK know how you fell. Please follow Race 4 Truth on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and through this website.
Thank you for your support. We’re not going away until Jim gets the recognition he deserves.
In the Race 4 Truth, Cancer Research UK are lagging behind.
Please note, we are not in any way suggesting those other people nominated are not worthy. Quite the opposite. We believe anyone who goes above and beyond deserves recognition. Especially the man who created an event which has raised nearly £1 Billion and has been copied by so many other charities since.
