All participants are given a sign to wear on their backs, where they can write who they're dedicating their run/jog/walk to. Its always quite emotional reading some of these signs, especially those of the youngsters doing the race, as there are many dedicated to parents they have lost at such a young age, and one today on the back of a young girl read 'for those who have survived cancer, like me'. I dedicated my race to my aunty Tina, who bravely battled breast cancer a few years ago, and thankfully beat it, thanks to new drugs developed by Cancer Research UK.
We were the only babywearers at the Race for Life I went to today, but I've seen pictures from other places in the country where groups of babywearers have done the race together! I had many lovely comments though, and so many people were intrigued by Joey riding on my back so easily. It was a really lovely morning, for a very worthy cause.
