Jessica Edwards, Sports Team Executive from Cancer Research UK:

‘Cancer Research UK are really excited to be the Official Charity Partner for the UK Triathlon series and even more excited at the creation of The Ladies Pink Wave. Our ambition is to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured and without the support of partners like UK Triathlon and the extraordinary generosity of the people taking part in these events, our life-saving work wouldn’t be possible. THANK YOU'.
