Weekend of ‘Race for Life’ fun for Pool of Life

2nd & 3rd July 2016…..Pool of Life have just completed a great ‘Race for Life’ weekend at Sefton Park!IMG_6508

On Saturday, 9 members of the team took the ‘Pretty Muddy‘ challenge and yes…..we got pretty muddy! We ran, jumped, climbed and slid our way round the 5k course crossing the finishing line hand in hand.  We had the occasional shower of rain but all in all the weather was fine throughout the race.  We had amazing support from the husbands who ended up carrying our valuables and running round the course with us!! They were also our official photographers, well done Peter, Ian, Alan & Bryan.  And we raised a fantastic £435 for Cancer Research UK.


On Sunday we had our gazebo up with lots of information and items of interest for people to look at.  The stall was very popular and hopefully we inspired some ladies to join us!  We also helped out by marshalling the course, it was enjoyable helping out with queries, directing people and giving lots of encouragement to the participants.  Definitely something we’d like to do again.IMG_6527
