THIS MOTHER’S Day, mums and daughters are being urged to join the fight against cancer by entering Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life in Falmouth.

The fundraiser takes place on Sunday, May 13, and as in previous years, will start and end at Gyllyngvase Beach car park.

Amy Salmon, Cancer Research UK’s Cornwall event manager, said: “By signing up to Race for Life, women in Cornwall can make a real difference in the fight against cancer. Money raised will help Cancer Research UK scientists and doctors find new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat the disease, helping save more lives.

“Taking part in Race for Life is a special and unique experience - full of emotion, courage, tears and laughter. By joining like-minded ladies committed to the cause, women can unite against a disease that affects us all in some way. Whether they plan to pound the pavements or amble to the finish line, every step participants take will help to support crucial research.”
