Description

Join us and race for cancer research

Each year, Cancer Research UK’s organise various 'Race for Life' events across the country in support of their vital research work covering the numerous different types of cancers. Just in the Yorkshire and Humber regions, there were around 1300 cancer cases per year in the NHS Greater Huddersfield, Kirklees area.

Cancer does not discriminate

Cancer does not discriminate. However, reseach shows that 4 in 10 cases could be prevented. It is, therefore, important that early diagnosis is sought as this may improve the chances of survival. However, with budget cuts and many other factors that may contribute to Cancer cases, it not only impact the individual, it can have a lasting effect on their family and friends, etc., too.

"1 in 2 people will get cancer in their lifetime"

It is said that 1 in 2 people will get cancer in their lifetime. With these odds, the work that Cancer Research UK cannot be underestimated. For example, data taken from Kirklees, West Yorkshire region showed there are around 1300 cancer cases diagnosed per year within the NHS Huddersfield CCG area.
