Jen told presenters Paul Allt and John Roberts how women and girls of all ages, abilities, shapes and sizes join together to raise money to help beat over 200 types of cancer.

He explained how his sister and daughter took part in a previous event in memory of his late wife and his mother.
“Race for Life is an amazing way to celebrate life but also remember those who have been lost to the disease. There are over 200 cancers and we won’t give up until we find cures for them all.” – Jennifer Ward, Race For Life
Cancer Research UK receives no government funding for its research. Every step it makes towards beating cancer relies on every pound donated.
The charity says its work into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer has helped save millions of lives.
