  15. I took part along with my 2 sisters and 2 neices in the 2010 race for life today, 6th June for the first time. We very sadly lost our Mum to cancer 6 months ago. It was a very emotional experience for us, thinking of our Mum, but also reading all the messages other people were displaying. The Glasgow event is so well supported and it was such a wonderful day, knowing you and 16,500 other people were caring and to raising funds for such a great charity. x

  16. I ran my second 5k on the 6th of June 2010. It is always an amzing atmosphere and so many supporters cheering you on! It’s a fantastic charity to be a part of – bring on the 10k next year!! xxx

  17. I took part today in my first ever Race for Life 6th June 2010 in Glasgow with my friend Laura(who has done Race for Life last year).I was very much in a humble postion today to be with so many women and children who have their lifes affected by cancer. Having had friends this year who are having their own battles with breast and bowl cancer, walking the 5k was very exciting and really enjoyed talking part, walking or running for Cancer Research UK, sponsorship money will be greatfully received and used to hopefully one day find a cure, finally.

    Thank you Race for Life, Thank you Cancer Research UK for all your very hard work, looking forward to next year.

    it was our first time and was a very emotional experience but one I am repeating this year. it would have been my sister allison’s birthday but she had died from breast cancer the year before but we saw so many other people taking part who are survivors.
