North-east women are being urged to enter a run to raise money for cancer.

This year’s Race for Life, which helps raise funds for Cancer Research UK, is due to start from Kings Links on June 10.

Lisa Adams, Cancer Research UK’s Scotland spokeswoman, said: “We are urging mums and daughters across Aberdeenshire to make this Mother’s Day extra special by signing up to Race for Life.

“By signing up to Race for Life, women can make a real difference in the fight against cancer. Money raised will help Cancer Research UK scientists and doctors find new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat the disease, helping save more lives.

“Taking part in Race for Life is a special and unique experience – full of emotion, courage, tears and laughter.

“By joining like-minded ladies committed to the cause, women can unite against a disease that affects us all in some way.”

The charity hope to recruit 400,000 women to take part across the UK, with a target of £38 million.
