The team are short on helpers for this year's event which raises vital funds to help beat cancer.

Could you help to raise money to fight cancer, by volunteering at Salisbury's Race for Life?

Organisers need more people to get involved as they only have 21 volunteers signed up to help so far - but need at least 35.

Men and women can volunteer for the event held at Hudson's Field on Sunday 9th June.

Money raised from those taking part in the 5k and 10k routes will help Cancer Research UK continue vital work into 200 types of cancers.

Could you help the runners cross the line?

There's a wide variety of fun and inspiring roles on offer like managing the information marquee, cheering on participants around the course and handing out well-deserved medals at the finish line.

Jutlla, a Race for Life Volunteer, said:

"Before she died, my wife Baldev and I always held CRUK close to our hearts.

"After many years as a volunteer, whether I'm setting up the course, handing out water bottles or supporting the runners, I can smile knowing that we will beat cancer, and that I will have played some part in helping make that moment possible."

One in two people in the UK will be diagnosed with cancer at some stage in their live.

Every two minutes, someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer, but the good news is more people are surviving the disease now than ever before.

Cancer survival in the UK has doubled since the early 1970s and Cancer Research UK's work has been at the heart of that progress.

Cancer Research UK are world leaders in finding new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer.
