Under Starter's Orders

Runners are under starter's orders for this year's Race For Life in aid of Cancer Research UK.

Event Manager Jennifer Ward appeared on the Coffee Club to publicise this year's races in Wirral.

Race For Life

The 5k and 10k events are part of more than 300 taking place nationwide to raise money to help defeat cancer.

The Birkenhead Park races take place on Sunday 28th June 2015.

"Race for Life events are not competitive. They are not about being fit or fast." - Jennifer Ward, Race For Life

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.

It's a subject close to Paul's heart.

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

Sharing memories at a previous event

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.
