Yeovil team up for Race For Life

Yeovil team up for Race For Life - 29 Mar 2011 - Women's Football News

Yeovil Town are teaming up to support Tesco and Cancer Research UK's Race for Life in Sherborne. 
The team of women - who range in age from 16 to 31 - were inspired to enter the event at Sherborne Castle as some members of the team have had close family or friends touched by cancer and they wanted to take part as a team in Race for Life this summer.
Now they are urging mums, grandmas, friends, family and colleagues to 'join the girls' and help raise money for Cancer Research UK's life-saving research.
Race for Life 2011 is the UK's largest women-only fundraising event series where women of all ages, shapes, sizes and abilities join together to walk, jog or run 5k to raise money to help beat cancer. All women are welcome, regardless of whether they are taking part on their own or as part of a group.
Last year 2,257 participants took part in Race for Life in Sherborne and raised an incredible £115,061. This year, 873 women have already entered and Cancer Research UK hopes many more will follow in their footsteps.
The team, known as 'The Glovers', played at home against Cardiff City on Sunday March 27th where they took part in a photo call wearing pink t-shirts to promote Race for Life. All members of the team are planning to take part in the event in June.
Yeovil Town Ladies FC Co-Manager Sarah Lawler, 29, from Bridgwater, said: "We are really looking forward to taking part in Race for Life. We were inspired to sign up as we know it's an amazing event. So many people are touched by the disease and we wanted to do something positive to help support Cancer Research UK's life saving work."
Every hour, around three people are diagnosed with cancer in the South West. When Race for Life started in 1994, many people diagnosed with cancer did not survive. Since then, money generated by Race for Life has supported Cancer Research UK's work and now more people are beating the disease than ever before.
Lisa Sweeting, Cancer Research UK's Race for Life event manager for Sherborne, said: "We are very grateful to the team from Yeovil Town Ladies FC. They are helping to beat cancer through their involvement in Race for Life. They show that it doesn't matter whether women walk, jog or run the 5k course. The most important thing is that they have fun, safe in the knowledge that they are making a real difference.
"Race for Life in Sherborne is a unique celebration of sisterhood and pride. The atmosphere is amazing, with local women from all walks of life coming together to make a positive difference to people affected by cancer. They motivate and inspire each other to complete the course with many simply walking round, chatting and having fun.
"In 2011, we hope more women than ever before will take part. We need our Race for Life regulars, as well as women who took part years ago, to join together with many new faces to help save more lives.
"By entering Race for Life, and helping to fund Cancer Research UK's crucial work, people in Sherborne could make a big difference to cancer patients here on their doorstep. One-in-three people in the UK will be diagnosed with the disease at some stage in their lives. But the good news is that more people are beating it than ever before. Cancer Research UK's work is at the heart of that progress. By helping to raise money through Race for Life, our supporters are turning hope into reality."
Race for Life helps Cancer Research UK to support the work of scientists, doctors and nurses who are dedicated to beating cancer by understanding its causes and investigating how best to prevent, diagnose and treat it.
Women in the South West can enter Tesco and Cancer Research UK's Race for Life at www.raceforlife.org or by calling (0871) 641 1111.
