What a fantastic show of support was displayed according to Car Hire Glasgow Airport, with the turnout for the Race for Life event in Glasgow at the weekend.
Many thousands took part in the Glasgow Cancer Research Race for Life 5k event, launched by former X-Factor winner Alexandra Burke, Ben Magee aged seven, who was diagnosed with leukaemia in Spring 2011 and Adele O’Brien who was diagnosed with cervical cancer.
A total of 14,483 runners took part, dressed in pink, Claire Wase, Cancer Research UK’s events manager for Glasgow, said “We’re so inspired by Ben, his mum Fiona and Adele and the bravery they have shown in the fight against cancer. We want to say a massive thank you to the generosity of the people of Glasgow who support Cancer Research UK by going the extra mile and making Glasgow the UK’s biggest Race for Life.”
Race for Life began in 1994 and has so far raised £526 million, with the aim during 2014 to raise £50 million to fund life-saving research into more than 200 types of cancer which affect men and women.
