Angus Provost Helen Oswald was among the thousands of participants at last month’s Race for Life event in Dundee, raising £2025 for Cancer Research.
Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life is a series of women-only events raising money for research into all 200 types of cancer.
Over the past 20 years, more than eight million women have taken part in Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life, raising over £547 million to fund the charity’s life-saving work.
The Dundee event was a family occasion for Provost Oswald who was joined by her daughters Kirsten and Linsey and grandchildren Harry, Tom, Isla and Evie – all of whom were given rousing support from the sidelines by husband Ed and other members of the Oswald clan.
Speaking from her home the Provost said: “Race for Life is a truly uplifting event – I was so proud to be part of the magnificent pink army’s rallying call against cancer. As many people will be aware I was diagnosed with cancer last year.
“And like everyone else touched by this dreadful disease, I know only too well the impact it has on the whole family.
“Race for Life gives families and friends the chance to raise much needed research funds, but it’s also an important opportunity to create new memories with those we love, as well as remembering those we have lost. I am grateful to those whose generosity helped raise this £2025 and I’d like to pass on my sincerest thanks to everyone for their support over the past few months.”
