PM’s ‘Leaping Lawyers’ team up for Race for Life event

May 7 2014

Two PM Law colleagues are teaming up to take part in this year’s Race for Life event at Meadowhall in Sheffield.

Laura Thorpe and Kelly Vause, civil litigation and employment lawyers at PM Law solicitors, want to raise more than £250 for Cancer Research UK at the event on 8th June.

The pair of ‘Leaping Lawyers’ will be donning pink tutus to run the five kilometre route around the outside of shopping complex alongside hundreds of other women from South Yorkshire.

Laura and Kelly were inspired to take part in the event after a work colleague was recently diagnosed with cancer.

“When our friend and colleague, Catherine, was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, we wanted to do something to help,” said Laura.

“Race for Life is a great opportunity to raise money and bring awareness to a disease that unfortunately affects lots of people and their families.”

Events like Race for Life are vital in funding Cancer Research UK’s life-saving work into preventing, diagnosing and treating cancer.

It is the second successive year that Sheffield’s Race for Life event has been held at Meadowhall after last year’s success.
