Mum’s the word to start countdown to Race for Life

Rob George 31st Mar, 2019   0

WORCESTER’S mums are being urged to join the fight against cancer by entering Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life.

For the first time, grown-up sons will be able to take part alongside their mothers after Cancer Research UK opened up the Race for Life events to everyone.

Taking part in the Race for Life is a hugely moving experience as people come together to remember loved ones lost to cancer, celebrate the lives of those dear to them who have survived or support those going through treatment.

Many people will be taking part alongside their mums, while others will be participating to honour their memory.

The Worcester Race for Life, which has 5k and 10k routes, takes place on Sunday, July 14 from Worcester Racecourse.

Cancer survival in the UK has doubled since the early 1970s and Cancer Research UK’s work has been key to that progress.
