In pictures: Lincoln Race for Life 2014

Cancer, we’re coming to get you: Thousands of ladies ran, walked and danced their way around the Lincolnshire Showground for Lincoln Race for Life 2014.

Thousands of ladies ran, walked and danced their way around the Lincolnshire Showground for the Lincoln Race for Life on Sunday, June 8.

Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life events raise money to help fight the condition by encouraging women of all ages, shapes and sizes to run or walk the 5k or 10k route.

Money raised at Race for Life events goes towards Cancer Research UK’s doctors, nurses and scientists to advance research in order to save lives of men, women and children.

David Martin, National Events Manager at Cancer Research UK, said: “Our events are the biggest success when we have a collective force working with us to help make a real difference in the fight to beat cancer.

“Your Print Partner and The Lincolnite have joined the fight against cancer with us this year by promoting the event, providing our Race for Life flags and banners and entering one of the biggest teams with the Your Print Partner team of ladies.

“Your support is showing cancer just what we think of it. Cancer is losing. Every single pound you’ve raised and every participant you’ve helped us recruit, will help make sure it keeps losing.

“On behalf of all of the team an Cancer Research UK, thank you for making the difference.”

Stuart Maclaren, Managing Director at Your Print Partner, said:  “It has been amazing to be part of the Race For Life team again this year in helping to fight cancer.

“We have once again printed all the flags and banners to help create the look and feel of the event. Printing and manufacturing them all in Lincoln.

“On top of this we teamed up with One Life and had more than 40 people take part as Team YPP!

“It has been amazing day and I would like to take this opportunity to thank the team at The Lincolnite for getting behind the team in Lincoln and helping to boost the number of ladies taking part in this years event.”
