Race for life – Laura Burgess

On Sunday 8th July 2012, Women from the local area will congregate in Sefton Park, Liverpool to be part of the biggest fight against cancer at Race for Life, and walk, jog or run to help beat cancer.

This event is just one of over 10 Race for Life events in the Liverpool surrounding area.

Race for Life is the UK’s biggest fight against cancer and the largest women-only fundraising event in the UK. Since Race for Life started in 1994, an incredible six millions participants have raised over £457million, more than any other UK event series raising money to fund cancer research.

Among the race starters on July 8th will be Edge Hill student Laura Burgess, who is running the Race for Life for her first ever time in memory of her grandad, who died 10 years ago through cancer.

Every pound that you donate to sponsor runners just like Laura really makes a difference. So why not ask around and find out who you know that might be taking part in a Race for Life event this year.
