The Best of Suffolk team completed the 5km Race of Life!
Before the race at the warm up
Well, we did it! The training in all weathers paid off on Sunday, with all four members of the Best of Suffolk Race for Life team completed the Ipswich 5km!
It was a day to remember, with over 3,700 gathered to take part in the event – one of many taking place all over the UK this summer to raise funds for Cancer Research UK. After torrential rain showers on the Saturday, we were relieved that the sun made some brief appearances during our race and the rain stayed away.
After the race with our medals!
The atmosphere was wonderful, with all of us there for a common cause…many people had signs on their back to say who they were racing for, often a relative or friend currently fighting cancer….they were very touching to read and made us all the more glad that we had made the effort to take part.
A big thank you goes out to everyone who sponsored us….your generosity meant that we exceeded our £400 target and raised well over £1,000!
I’m very proud of our team for taking part – we were all well out of our ‘comfort zones’ and it goes to show what you can do if you believe in something enough…
