More than 950 participants of all ages, abilities, shapes and sizes men, women and children took part in Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life at Hudsons Field, Salisbury, on June 9.
Vicki Turner, Cancer Research UK’s Salisbury Events Manager, said: “The atmosphere was hugely moving – full of emotion, courage, tears and laughter – as people came together to remember loved ones lost to cancer or celebrate the lives of those dear to them who have survived. Race for Life offers a unique opportunity for like-minded people to unite against a disease that affects us all in some way.
“Now we’re asking everyone who took part, and all the friends, family and colleagues who pledged to sponsor them, to return the money they’ve raised as soon as possible. Money raised – whether it’s £10 or £100 – will help Cancer Research UK scientists find new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat the disease, helping save more lives.”
Sponsorship money can be paid online, by phone, by cheque or in person at a Cancer Research UK shop.
Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life, in partnership with Tesco, raises millions of pounds every year to help beat cancer by funding crucial research.
