Team PR Raced for their Lives…Posted by Bethan James
July 13th, 2010
After training for what seemed like an eternity, Marina and I finally took part in the 10km Race for Life at Leicester’s Western Park last Saturday, the 10th July. During what has been the hottest day of the year to date, we set about running the some 6.2 miles along the bumpy course with the other 1,500 brave souls who were all running/walking/crawling to raise money for the very worthwhile charity, Cancer Research. After 58 minutes I made it to the finish line with Marina hot on my heels - both of us smashing our personal best times. It was a great day fuelled with emotion as it’s humbling to see just how many people have been affected by cancer in some way or another. We’ve received a lot of support from friends, family and work colleagues and between us we’ve raised over £700 - something we’re both very proud of. Question is - who will be joining us next year?!
