On Saturday 21st December, Happy Feet Fitness runners and walkers gathered together to raise funds for Teenage Cancer Trust
Many of us dressed up, there were Elves, Christmas trees and even Mrs Christmas, as well as jingling bells, antlers, flashing lights and tinsel!
There was a choice of either a 5k walk or run or a 10k run, the turnout was amazing and our generous runners raised £300
Afterwards we enjoyed cakes and mince pies, some of them home made, one of our volunteers made their legendary lemon drizzle cake, which was delicious. As usual there was much laughter and merriment!
Why Teenage Cancer Trust?
Earlier this year the son of one of our runners was diagnosed with cancer, it was a huge shock and he had to undergo hard months of treatment. Thankfully he is now on the mend and is starting to get to grips with life after treatment, the charity have supported him and his family through and beyond this tough time. Now the family want to give something back, and to support them we have held two events, adding nearly £500 in total to their fundraising pot.
We'd like to say a huge "THANK YOU" to all our runners and walkers for their generosity!
