14th July UPDATE
The Dales Darlings, with our honorary four-legged team member, Pixel, joined in the sea of pink running round the Stray on Sunday morning, and successfully completed our 5k Race for Life, crossing the finish line all together. Many thanks to everyone who has sponsored us. We are delighted to have raised significantly more than our original target x
It all started with the Couch to 5K running programme. Our little team is just a group of friends who have encouraged each other to start running. And having just about got over the surprise of actually completing Couch to 5K successfully, it seemed to make sense to use our new-found fitness to raise money for cancer research.
So if you’ve spotted me, or any of us, running round the dale in the rain and the mud, out of breath and probably bright red in the face (think tomato or beetroot here!) then we’d be really grateful if you could sponsor us. It doesn’t matter how small the amount – it all adds up, then we’ll know that all those early mornings and sore muscles have been worth it.
