The Moor piazza in Falmouth was taken over by a group of pink-clad fitness fanatics on Saturday to drum up support for this year’s Race For Life.
Members of the Falmouth Embrace Dance Fitness group swapped their usual fitness routine for a defiant dance known as Race for Life’s Cancer Slam which aimed to stop shoppers in their tracks and motivate mums, grans, daughters, sisters and friends to sign-up for Race for Life.
Embrace instructor Gillian Sadler, 35, from Penryn, said: “We’re so excited about taking part in the Cancer Slam and we’ve had a great time learning the routine. We hope we can inspire women to join in the fun and enter their local Race for Life event.”
Ruth Chamings, Race for Life South West events manager, said: “We’d like to thank Embrace Dance for taking part in the Cancer Slam and showing us how it’s done.
“The Cancer Slam is a fun, defiant and energetic dance which epitomises the power and emotion of Race for Life and we urge women from across the region to get involved and unite in the fight against cancer.”
The Falmouth Race for Life takes place on Sunday, May 18, starting and finishing at Gyllyngvase Beach car park.
Last year, 1,160 women took part and raised £61,124. This year,organisers need 1,200 women and girls to take part and help raise £63,232 for vital research.
