Loose Women presenters Carol McGiffin, Sherrie Hewson and Lisa Maxwell together with Corrie’s Brooke Vincent and Emmerdale’s Nicola Wheeler urge women to unite and join the fight against cancer this summer by taking part in Race for Life.
Coronation Street's Brooke Vincent says: "Almost everyone's life is toched by cancer at some point, so Cancer Research UK's Race for Life is a brilliant way to get your girls together and make a real difference to help beat this awful disease. Not only will you have loads of fun but you will also be joining the biggest fight against cancer this summer."
It's all of us versus cancer and women across the UK can walk, jog, or run 5k in Cancer Research UK's Race for Life events across the country to help more people survive.
Carol McGiffin says: "I'm a regular at my local race for life - this will be my ninth year - and there's always such an amazing atmosphere as women come together to joing the fight against cancer. I lost my lovely mum to cancer and taking part in race for life is a great way to celebrate her life and I feel like I'm making a difference. You don't need to be super fit to take part as it only takes and hour to walk 5k so get a gang of friends together and sign up now."
Will you be taking part this year?
It is hoped £55m will be raised for research into over 200 types of cancer that affect both men and women.
Emmerdale's Nicola Wheeler says: "Every two minutes someone in the UK is told they have cancer and it touches so many lives. I've known far too many people young and old, battling cancer. Most, I'm happy to say, won the fight but tragically not all. Treating cancer is extremely important but perhaps just as important if not more is finding a cure. By taking part in Race for Life you can help beat over 200 types of cancer and make a real difference."
