SIR - We would like to invite your readers to join the world's largest fund-raising event. Cancer Research UK's Relay for Life will return to North Devon at North Devon Athletics Track, Braunton, on Saturday, June 13. Last year's event raised a staggering �18,000 for Cancer Research UK's pioneering world-class research to improve understanding of the disease and find out how to best prevent, diagnose and treat different forms of cancer.Cancer Research UK's Relay for Life will bring together teams from across North Devon for up to 24 hours to celebrate the lives of those who have survived cancer, remember those who have passed away and honour the courage of their loved ones.No doubt many of your readers have been affected by cancer in some way and this is a unique opportunity for them to join a global celebration and make a real difference.We are currently recruiting groups of friends, families and work colleagues to form teams and take part.The teams will be encouraged to fund-raise in the build-up to Relay for Life and will then take turns to walk, skip, run or crawl around the Braunton track.We would also like to hear from local cancer patients and survivors who will be invited to take part in the Lap of Honour which kicks off the whole Relay for Life weekend.Anyone wanting to get involved in Relay for Life in North Devon will receive a warm welcome.
