Get ready to run with mum.

Cambridge mums and daughters are being urged to unite and join the fight against cancer by entering Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life this Mother’s Day, March 26.

The charity is inviting women of all ages, shapes and sizes to choose their event - Race for Life 5k or 10k - and pledge to take part on Sunday 16 July at Parkers Piece.

Money raised will help Cancer Research UK scientists find new ways to treat cancer and save more lives.

Gill Burgess, Cancer Research UK’s Cambridge Event Manager, said: “We are urging mums and daughters in Cambridge to make this Mother’s Day extra special by signing up to Race for Life. It’s the perfect opportunity to spend quality time together, create precious memories and join like-minded women determined to beat cancer sooner.

“Race for Life events are non-competitive and participants can choose to walk, jog or run around the course. Whether they’re planning a 5k amble with friends, a 10k sprint or a mud-splattered race around Pretty Muddy, every step participants take together will help to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.

“Every day, 90 people are diagnosed with cancer in the East of England*. That’s why we’re calling on women in Cambridge to sign up to Race for Life right now. Together, we can stop this devastating disease in its tracks.”

To enter Race for Life today visit raceforlife.org or call 0300 123 0770.
