WHY DO RACE FOR LIFE?

90 people in the South West are diagnosed with cancer every day.

One in two people in the UK will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lives, but more people are surviving the disease now than ever before.

Cancer survival in the UK has doubled since the early 1970s.

All the money raised at the Race for Life's across the country will help to fund Cancer Research UK scientists in their work to find new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat the disease, helping save more lives.

Vicki Turner, the Salisbury Event Manager, said:

"Our Race for Life events are fun, colourful, emotional and uplifting. You don't need to be sporty to take part. You don't have to train, and you certainly don't need to compete against anyone else.

"We're urging mums, dads, nans, grandpas, brothers, sisters, friends and workmates to show their support by joining the Race for Life. It's a perfect example of everyday people doing an extraordinary thing - uniting in a common cause to beat cancer.

"We encourage our participants to help raise money in whatever way they like - there are lots of ideas on the Race for Life website - because this allows Cancer Research UK to fund vital research that saves lives. This includes clinical trials which give patients in Salisbury access to the latest treatments."
