Amidst her energetic renditions of crowd favourites like ‘Boys and Girls’ and ‘All About Tonight’, Pixie also treated the audience to a preview of her new hits ‘Midnight Trash’ and ‘Coco Chanel’.

Cancer Research UK is seizing this moment to unveil the Race for Life 2024, inviting everyone to contribute their top tunes to the newly minted ‘Plays for Life’ playlist. This musical call to action is backed by research highlighting the motivational power of music in exercise, with a staggering 92% of Brits finding that tunes energise their fitness routines.

Participants are encouraged to share those special songs that resonate deeply, whether they conjure memories of loved ones or simply get them moving. Pixie contributed Harry Nilsson’s ‘Everybody’s Talkin’’, a nostalgic nod to her grandmother, illustrating the deep personal connections we share with music.

The choice of Battersea for this launch is poignant, lying just a stone’s throw from the site of the inaugural Race for Life. Gareth Mulcahy, Head of Events and Sports for Cancer Research UK, reflected on the significance of the location and the power of music to inspire and motivate participants as they fundraise through fitness.

The Race for Life events promise a fusion of community spirit and personal challenge, backed by a soundtrack that carries powerful stories and emotional weight. The collective endeavour not only fosters a sense of empowerment but also showcases the strides made in cancer survival, thanks in part to the pivotal research funded by these very races.
