Why I volunteer at Race for Life

"The strength and spirit of the ladies taking part in Race for Life reminds me of my wife and my mother, reminds me what’s important, and reminds me why I volunteer every year to support this incredible team."

Jutlla has been supporting Race for Life since the devastating loss of both his wife and mother in 2004. “Before she died", he says, "my wife Baldev and I had always supported CRUK. Seeing eight members of our family suffer from cancer meant beating cancer sooner was always in our hearts.

"When I started volunteering at events, the people I met and the cause we were fighting for helped me to smile again – and I haven’t stopped since!

"Whether I’m setting up the course, handing out water bottles or congratulating participants with their medals, I smile knowing that when we beat cancer I will have played some part in helping make that moment possible. Join me in the fight!"
