The passionate support for Race for Life began in 2002 when our dear friend Lena was first diagnosed and so began her battle. Her friends from LTS felt inspired to show support by attending the first event 16 years ago and from this day on the 'T*t’s up' team was born. The support for this important day has continued year on year from friends at LTS and outside.
Lena not only organised this event every year, she also showed passionate commitment to this charity with bake days, coffee mornings and inspiring everyone to be involved in some way. Lena was a natural organiser and was the life and energy behind this important fund raising so we are faced with a huge challenge to continue this without her by our side. There are not enough words in our story to begin to reflect what a beautiful person and friend Lena was to us all. For all that knew her you will take comfort in your own memories and remember her passion and strength over the years not just with her own battle, but for all the fund raising and time she has given to this charity.
The name T*t’s Up was picked by Lena and our beautiful friend Katie Rose. Katie was a remarkable friend who’s passion to support Lena has never been forgotten and her absence by our side on race day is still felt. This year we will also be celebrating Katie’s life and love for this event alongside remembrance for our lovely friend May. May is never far from our thoughts and we will all remember her fondly on the 11th June 2017 when we stand together again on race day and recall her bravery in her own battle.
Please help us to continue to raise as much money as possible for this important charity and to support the memory of our beautiful friends. The story of T*ts Up will continue as will the fight and support for all our brave ladies out there.
