Race For Life

On the 26th of June I did a 5km Race For Life run/walk, which is a women only race, to raise money for Cancer Research. I did the run with 2 of my girl friends and we raised over £450 for the cause. It's a cause we all believe in strongly, not just as scientists but as friends and family of those who have suffered from a number of different cancers. It was a really emotional but fun day which was really well organised. The signs people were wearing were really sweet and made me tear up. It was inspiring to be around so many strong women including those that were racing for themselves as well as others. My family came to support us and they enjoyed it too. We even got free Yakult! And the goodie bag at the end of the race was brilliant too.

Race For Life do many different races, for different charities, which men can partake in too so I'd highly recommend doing something like this if you want to raise money for any charity as the atmosphere is amazing.

I'd also like to thank my sponsors again, as without their help I wouldn't have been able to make the slight difference I did.
