90s stars unite with Cancer Research UK for Race for Life
The fondly remembered 90s was the era where we all made some Friends, debated whether there was room on the raft (Titanic) and sent our first texts – or our last fax. But, not only that, it’s also when 749 people took part in the very first Race for Life. Now, each event sees many take part of all different ages, walks of life and some even dressed in iconic outfits. With cycling shorts, bucket hats, and spaghetti straps all back in fashion, everything from the 90s is starting to feel Back for Good. In support of this year’s commemorative Race for Life, the 90s stars have teamed up with Cancer Research UK to encourage Everybody to join the celebration No Matter What and sign up to walk, jog, or run at one of the hundreds of events taking place across the UK this year. To kick start the summer of events, the 90s stars have joined previous Race for Life participants and donned their best nostalgic nineties’ outfits and accessories, to celebrate the event’s history and inspire people of all ages to unite with family, friends, or colleagues, or even take part solo this year, to raise money to fund life-saving research. The first ever Race for Life took place in Battersea Park (London) in 1994, where 749 people came together to raise £48,000. Since then, the fundraising initiative has grown into Cancer Research UK’s biggest, raising an astounding £940 million towards beating cancer. This year alone, 450 events will take place, at 180+ venues across the UK.
