Since its launch in 1994, Race for Life has grown from a single event in Battersea Park to a nationwide fundraiser. Over the past three decades, it has raised over £970 million, funding groundbreaking research that has helped improve cancer survival rates and treatment options.

At the weekend, I went to the Race For Life held at Trinity Park in Ipswich, as my brother was taking part in the 5k event. In addition to the 5k, there were also 3k, 10k, and Pretty Muddy courses too. There were so many people in attendance, whether taking part or spectating, and I enjoyed spending the morning with my family watching the amazing fundraisers cover their chosen distance, all while raising much needed funds for Cancer Research UK.

There were stories being shared of survival and loss, hope for the future, and a big sense of gratitude. It was great to hear that, in Ipswich alone, £140,000 had been raised in this year’s Race For Life.

Cancer has impacted a lot of the team here at Bridge Classic Cars. We have been working on a project that will soon go live to help start conversations and offer support to all those who are facing cancer.

My brother raised around £300 which will all go toward funding research that will hopefully, one day, stop cancer from impacting anyone else.
