Race for Life - Birkenhead 2008

Race for Life is Cancer Research UK's flagship event that has grown to become the UK's largest women-only fundraising event. Races are run all over the UK and in 2007 665,000 women took part.


This year the LCTU decided to support the Race for Life by helping out at the Birkenhead race. Six members of the LCTU team went along to help out by awarding medals and handing out goody bags and bottles of water. There was a fantastic turn out with over 5000 women running the race.

Charlotte West, the daughter of Julia West (TeloVac coodintator) started the race on behalf of the LCTU. She completed it in 30 minutes 33 seconds and raised £250 for Cancer Research UK.
