Thousands of women are today uniting against cancer by walking or running 5k in the Race for Life at Waddesdon Manor.

Cancer Research UK’s annual Race for Life encourages women of all ages to get together and raise money for vital scientific research into a cure for the disease.

Last year, 1,620 women took part in Race for Life at Waddesdon Manor and helped raise £110,410. This year, the charity hopes those who have entered will hit a target of £122,667.

Aylesbury race manager Simon Burley said: “Race for Life is not competitive and it’s not about being fit or fast. It’s about thousands of women coming together to show cancer who’s boss.”

The race, set in the grounds of Waddesdon Manor, kicks off at 10.30am but those taking part have been advised to get there an hour early to give themselves enough time to park.

The charity is also encouraging participants to do a ‘wardobe work out’ to boost their donation by 25%.

Everyone taking part receives a donation bag, along with a Gift Aid form, as part of their entry pack.

Ladies should fill it with quality clothes, books and accessories they no longer use and drop it off at their race’s Donation Station.
