'Coronation Street', 'Emmerdale' stars support Race for Life

By
Coronation Street's Brooke Vincent and Emmerdale's Nicola Wheeler have announced their support for this year's Race for Life.

The pair, who play Sophie Webster and Nicola King on their respective soaps, are encouraging women to unite and join the fight against cancer by taking part in one of this summer's events.

Vincent commented: "Almost everyone's life is touched by cancer at some point, so Cancer Research UK's Race for Life is a brilliant way to get your girls together and make a real difference to help beat this awful disease.

"Not only will you have loads of fun, but you will also be joining the biggest fight against cancer this summer."

Wheeler added: "Every two minutes, someone in the UK is told they have cancer and it touches so many lives. I've known far too many people young and old, battling cancer. Most, I'm happy to say, won the fight but tragically not all.

"Treating cancer is extremely important, but perhaps just as important if not more is finding a cure. By taking part in Race for Life, you can help beat over 200 types of cancer and make a real difference. So get your mates together and sign up now to join the biggest fight against cancer this summer."

Loose Women presenters Carol McGiffin, Sherrie Hewson and Lisa Maxwell are also supporting this year's campaign.

Women across the UK can walk, jog or run 5k in Race for Life events across the country. Event bosses hope that £55m will be raised for research into over 200 types of cancer that affect both men and women.

More details are available on the Race for Life website.
