Today my daughter and I ran in the Race for Life, a sponsored 5K run/walk in aid of Cancer Research UK.

I have taken part five times in the last seven years, but for the first time this year I noticed a couple of Muslimahs in the race. :)

About Race for Life

Since it started in 1994, Race for Life has grown to become the UK’s biggest women-only fundraising event. All the money raised by our participants helps fund the crucial work of Cancer Research UK – the world’s leading independent organisation dedicated to cancer research.

So far, over two million women of all ages have run, walked or jogged to raise over £140 million in sponsorship for the charity. This year we hope to raise £60 million for our life-saving work by bringing an amazing 800,000 women together to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
