Race for Life was wonderful

MAY I, on behalf of all us ‘pink ladies’ at Race for Life thank all who were involved, supporters and volunteers in the pouring rain.

As we stepped off our, affectionately known ‘little train’ (another nice gesture, thank you guys) in the rain, feeling a little ‘what are we doing here’ mode, we saw a sea of pink, lots of excitement, smiling faces, we realised we were all there for a reason, spirits soared.

With regard to the ‘third who do not hand their sponsorship money in’.

I must admit I was one of them (I did sponsor three people). Some of us do the run because we enjoy the atmosphere.

It’s a sad situation for many of us, but may we through these wonderful fun races, make a difference and hopefully conquer with terrible disease.

Good luck to everyone, keep up the good work.
