THERE is still time to enter Race for Life, which encourages women to stand up to cancer.

This year’s event starts on Southsea Common on Sunday, July 21, and is organised by Cancer Research UK.

Helen Tibbott, Portsmouth’s Race for Life organiser, said: ‘We’re issuing the rallying cry “cancer, we’re coming to get you”, to mums, daughters, sisters, grandmas and friends, encouraging them to sign up as soon as possible.

‘We are very grateful to everyone who has already entered, but we urgently need many more.

‘We hope women will hear our plea and register as soon as possible.
