Mums and daughters called to unite against cancer this Mother's Day (March 26) and enter Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life

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

The charity is inviting women of all ages, shapes and sizes to choose the Race for Life 5k and pledge to take part on Sunday, June 18 at Malvern Park.

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

Emily Thompson, Cancer Research UK’s Solihull Event Manager, said: “We are urging mums and daughters in Solihull 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 or a sprint, every step participants take together will help to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.

“Every day, 85 people are diagnosed with cancer in the West Midlands* That’s why we’re calling on women in Solihull to sign up to Race for Life right now. Together, we can stop this devastating disease in its tracks.”

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. Survival rates have doubled since the early 1970s and Cancer Research UK’s work has been at the heart of that progress.

Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life, in partnership with Tesco, is an inspiring women-only series of 5k, 10k, Pretty Muddy, Marathon and Hiking events which raise millions of pounds every year to help beat cancer sooner by funding life-saving research.
