Race for Life 2017

June 30, 2017 11:38 am

Yesterday, 450 students walked, jogged and ran 5km around our local area in Basford to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

Despite the rain, the mood was cheerful, with participants extremely eager to race and raise their sponsor money. Many students came dressed for the occasion in fancy dress or outfits with the names of loved ones who had been touched by cancer written on them. At the end of the race, there was a hugely popular foam machine for people to run through.

Notts TV were there to record the action and students were keen to get on camera to spread the message about why they were taking part in this charity event. 

Well done to everyone who took part in raising money for this great cause. We will update you on the total raised once all of the sponsorship money is in and counted.
