Race for Life 2009 – The Power of Pink

This soggy morning, I was off to the University Parks to take part in Race for Life.

It’s an all women event…

…to raise money for cancer research.

As you can see people really get into the spirit of the event – in costumes one normally associates with medical students, or rugby players in drag.

Everyone got rather wet…

As I’d had a bug of some kind this week, I’d decided to walk. However, the Traves bloody mindedness kicked in, and I jogged the whole way (and managed a mad dash for the line!). Sadly, my triumph picture (above) makes me look like a character from Little Britain!

The main thing is that I raised £280 in sponsorship. Thank you all very much!
