In 2010 - Havering Sixth Form College’s fantastic team of 75 women took part in the Race for Life on Sunday July 4th – and raised an incredible £4,825.66 for Cancer Research UK.
On a scorching hot day and cheered on by family, friends and supporters, the team joined the thousands of other like-minded women in a snaking sea of pink and white to complete the 5K course at Hylands Park, Chelmsford.
Some of the College team ran the race in just over half an hour and others jogged or walked the distance – but all were greeted with a huge cheer as they crossed the finish line.
Wearing their orange sashes, the women were easily identifiable and the College team received many mentions by the race commentator as the participants wound their way around the tree-lined course.
After the race, and joined by other College staff members, family and friends, many stayed on for a picnic in the park to soak up the wonderful feeling created by the event - a happy yet poignant atmosphere because most women taking part were remembering loved ones who had died from cancer.
Gift Aid it!
