HUNDREDS of people showed their support for fighting cancer at the annual Race for Life event at Victoria Park, Warrington, on Sunday.
This year, for the first time, Cancer Research UK invited everyone – men, women and children – to join the Race for Life event.
Hundreds of like-minded people joined together and remembered loved ones lost to cancer or celebrated the lives of those who have survived cancer for the Pretty Muddy and Pretty Muddy Kids events.
Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life, in partnership with Tesco, involved an inspiring series of 5k, 10k, Pretty Muddy and Pretty Muddy Kids events.
Money raised through Race for Life will help Cancer Research UK scientists find new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat the disease, helping save more lives.
One in two people in the UK will be diagnosed with cancer at some stage in their lives, but the good news is more people are surviving the disease now than ever before. Cancer survival in the UK has doubled since the early 1970s and Cancer Research UK’s work has been at the heart of that progress.
