3,000 Women Take Part in Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life

Race-for-LifeMore than 3,000 girls and women were present at Worthing seafront to take part in Cancer Research UK's Race for Life 2013.

A pink wave was full of confidence and was there to remember loved ones, who lost their battle to cancer. And, also for those who were suffering from cancer. They had to cover 5km route, but things became little difficult due to temperature, which was more than 24C.

But as said the determination was quite strong so thousands of runners ran to raise funds. Organizers were of the view that they have expected to raise about £200,000. The raised funds are used to carry out researches and for helping people suffering from cancer.

Angela Lambert, 58, from Bognor, shared her experience. She was of the view that 11 years back, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. "I was devastated when I was diagnosed. But after a mastectomy, chemotherapy and regular checkups, I'm now free of cancer and feeling great".

One of the main aims to be part of the event was to celebrate with friends as well as to help those who have been living with cancer and also for those who were diagnosed with cancer but are no more.
