Race For Life


Yes indeed, Sunday was Race For Life Day. After signing ourselves up back in February to do the 5km walk/jog/stagger around Cheltenham Racecourse the day finally arrived. I have never taken part before but am so pleased I did.
The atmosphere was amazing, 5000 women all joined together to take part in an event that raises money for such a good cause. Our team, all ladies from the cafe, have raised in excess of £600 so far, which we are delighted with.
Thankyou to all of my family and friends who have sponsored us, it is hugely appreciated. Hopefully with all of the money being raised by ladies across the country we will eventually find a cure for cancer.
As for me, I am definitely going to do it again next year, hopefully running it next time. No promises though...!

Good work ladies!! I did it last year and it was a great experience but didn't get around to doing it this year (hangs head in shame). Would be amazing to actually run it but I'm certainly not going to make that promise!
