...continued... Money raised through Race for Life allows Cancer Research UK's doctors, nurses and scientists to advance research which is helping to save the lives of men, women and children across the North West.

Cancer survival rates have doubled since the 1970s and Cancer Research UK's work has been at the heart of that progress. But more funds and more supporters are needed to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.

Jennifer continued:- "We're calling on the brave ladies of Liverpool to pull on their leggings and take on cancer at this year's event.  Race for Life is to celebrate those who are with us, and also remember those who are not. The atmosphere is electric, our participants are so inspiring and we're calling on the women of Liverpool to help make 2015 our best year yet."
