Race for Life 2012 to Begin Soon

As per a recent report, it has been revealed that Cancer Research UK is organizing yet another Race for Life in Peterborough, which would be held on July 10.

It has been found that the Race for Life is an event that is organized each year by the charity so as to raise funds for cancer patients. The event is a women-only series, being organized in association with Tesco, which would include thousands of women and their daughters’ participation.

It is being said that mothers and daughters walk or run with fun and chatting, simultaneously raising millions of pounds for research into cancer of different types. The report has found that around 2,968 women, who participated in the race last year, had made a total contribution of £153,578.

Cancer Research has helped researchers to conduct thorough researches into the disease, thereby saving thousands of lives. And the charity further also aims at reducing the number of deaths due to cancer in the country. This year, the charity managers have been hoping that as compared to 2011, more funds would be collected by almost 3,000 women.

As a part of its aim to kill cancer, the charity has also conducted a trial to test a new method for killing the leading killer breast cancer. According to the findings, the trail includes radiotherapy treatment that is given to patients after breast conservation surgery, which is carried out for early stage breast cancer.

It has been found that a number of women are undergoing the same and are thus, helping researchers to determine whether or not the new procedure is helpful in cutting the harms. “IT’S all of us versus cancer” is the rallying cry being issued to women for encouraging more participation into Race for Life, told Gemma Turpin, Event Manager.
