X Factor star Lucie Jones is aiding Cancer Research UK through proceeds raised from the re-recording of Cyndi Lauper's track “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.”

A total of 20 stars – including former Atomic Kitten Liz McClarnon, glamour model Danielle Lloyd and former “EastEnders” actress Lucy Benjamin – raised their voices to bring awareness to breast cancer. Hundreds of local UK women affected by cancer are also featured on the track.

The popular single was originally released in 1984 and was a huge hit for Lauper. Music star Sonique is supporting the re-recording. Her participation marks her first time performing since having her own cancer battle last June.

Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life is the largest women-only fundraising event in the UK. Established in 1994, Race for life brings women of all ages and fitness levels across the UK together to help beat cancer.

Set for an April 26th release, the single will officially launch the Race for Life 2010 event series. For more information about the re-recording and other Race for Life events visit the official website.
