Recovering from breast cancer, actress Jennifer Saunders is already pumped and ready to participate in Chariots of Fire’s charity race in Cambridge.

The September 19 race, organized by law firm Hewitsons, will raise money for Wallace Cancer Care, which is a center at Addenbrooke Hospital that provides cancer support services and Home Start Cambridge & District, an organization that helps families deal with illnesses or medical hardships.

Chariots of Fire’s first race began in 1992 and raised 17,000 euros, after Race Director Bill Matthews was inspired by the film “Chariots of Fire.” The event takes place at Queen’s Green through the city streets and Trinity College.

Diagnosed with cancer in October 2009, Saunders’ doctors announced that the Absolutely Fabulous star is currently in remission and should be on her way to full recovery.

“I’m very happy to be able to support Wallace Cancer Care,” Saunders tells Cambridge News. “Having recently undergone treatment for breast cancer myself, I understand how very important it is to have the kind of support and help that Wallace Cancer Care provides.”
