Race for Life

Kate did the Race for Life today, which is a 5km ladies only run for Cancer Research UK. She raised £90 which is great given its the first time she has done anything like this. It was over at Broughton Hall, just outside of Skipton, which is not far from home and incidentally where I work (our office is there).

It was done as two races, one in the morning at 10:30am and the other at 2:30pm. The event was very well organised, we parked up on the Water Mill Park then walked across onto the main site. The start / finish straight was directly in front of the hall. They had a fitness instructor warm the ladies up. Watching 2000 woman jumping up and down dancing whilst their partners resolutely stood still was hilarious.

Apparently at same the event last year they raised £150,000! Hopefully this year they’ll raise more since they had over 4000 people taking part. If any of you generous souls would like to make a donation for Kate, you can do here! It would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

Edit: Sponsorship page on Race for Life site appears to be running slow at the moment.
