Celebrate life and beat breast cancer
Sarah Gibbs is fundraising for Cancer Research UK

I will be joining millions of other women from all over the country in June to do the 5K race for life to raise funds for Cancer Research. Please feel free to click on the badge above or the one at the right hand side of my blog page to take you to my online sponser page for the event.

Race for Life began in 1994 as one event in London’s Battersea Park with 680 participants. In 2010 over 690,000 women walked, jogged and ran at over 230 events across the UK.
Race for Life is the largest series of women-only fundraising events in the UK.
Since Race For Life began, an incredible 5.4 million participants across the UK have raised over £362 million to fund Cancer Research UK’s life-saving work.

  2. Good luck with your race! I am doing Race for Life in Northampton this year, never done it before so I'm really looking forward to it x

  3. Hope you will be dressing up! I did my first 10k in October with my boyfriend also for cancer research but the race for life is more fun, lots of girls together :)

  4. Race for Life looks like great fun and for a great cause! I just found out about it 2 days ago as I'm new to the UK, just arrived in December!
    I have decided to take part this summer - my first run since middle school cross country!! I'll be starting training next week as I'm quite unfit. It's a great reason to get fit and loose that extra weight all for a good cause!
