Nadine Coyle to reunite with Girls Aloud bandmates in memory of Sarah Harding

Nadine Coyle is set to reunite with fellow Girls Aloud bandmates for a special run in memory of tragic Sarah Harding.

A special Race For Life has been organised to honour their late bandmate’s wish that they raise money for breast cancer research.

Derry -born Nadine, Kimberley Walsh, Nicola Roberts and Cheryl will be fundraising throughout this year.

Fixtures include a 5km running event named the Race For Life For Sarah, which aims to celebrate Harding’s life as well as raising money.

The singer died at 39 in September last year after revealing that she had been diagnosed with cancer which had spread to other parts of her body.

The 5km event will take place on Sunday, July 24, at Race For Life in Hyde Park, London.

The Race For Life For Sarah will begin at 11.30am as a special addition and will be attended by Cheryl, Nadine and Nicola.

Kimberley will be completing the 5km at her home, and those who cannot make it to London are encouraged to do the distance virtually.

Posting on her Instagram story, Cheryl said: “So around this time last year when Sarah was really sick, we were all desperately trying to find ways to help her, to comfort her, to do whatever she wanted.

“You feel so helpless in times like that.

“And one of the only things she really wanted was a gala dinner, so while that is under way and we are doing that, we felt like we could be doing more and we have decided to do Race For Life For Sarah at Hyde Park on 24 July. And I know so many of you wanted to support her, you were helping her all the way through the illness, and we would really love it if you could join us there.”

Nicola and Kimberley shared the poster for the event on their Instagram pages.

Nicola’s caption read: “In memory of Sarah, together we’ll raise money for vital breast cancer research.

“Let’s come together and make it a beautiful day and contribute towards making a difference for other women too.”

Kimberley wrote: “I have some really amazing news to share.

“Me and the girls have teamed up with Cancer Research UK to raise money for breast cancer research projects and one
in particular that Sarah really wanted to help fund. We would love for you all to join us and help us raise money in Sarah’s name.

“It’s an amazing opportunity to come together and celebrate her life and also make a huge contribution to the future outcomes of those affected by cancer.

“We hope you will sign up and share this moment with us.”

The fundraising efforts will conclude with a large gala dinner later in the year.
