Cancer Research UK Fun Run

More than 2500 women turned up to the Lawson Showground, East Park Drive, Blackpool in support of the Cancer Research UK 5K Race for Life.

Into its 10th Year the ladies of the town have already raised more than £1million pounds for Cancer Research.

The organisers of Cancer Research UK were so touched by an email they received from Bethany, a local school girl, that they invited her to start the race.

The event saw women of all walks of life, status, age and physical fitness come together to do something wonderful to raise as much money as possible to find a cure for this dreadful disease. 

 Some may have begun the race alone but they definitely finished it in groups hugging, kissing and smiling - well done girls!!.
