Race for Life is a series of women-only 5K and 10k runs. There are over 200 5K runs taking place in 2015, with thousands of women taking part who run, walk or dance their way around the course, raising money with every step.


Money raised by runners in all Race for Life events help Cancer Research UK investigate all 200 types of cancer affecting people of all ages.


As Anne says on her sponsorship page:

“Events like this are vital in funding Cancer Research UK’s life-saving work into preventing, diagnosing and treating cancer. By sponsoring me, we can unite and create an army that cancer can’t ignore. By sponsoring me, we will beat cancer sooner. Sponsor me now, and help me show cancer that hell hath no fury like a woman in pink.”


We’ll be cheering Anne on and if you’d like to show your support, here’s a link to her Just Giving page where you can sponsor her.
