Fam­ily af­fair for Pretty Muddy event this Sun­day

Loughborough Echo - - NEWS -

A CAN­CER sur­vivor is cel­e­brat­ing com­ing to the end of her treat­ment by get­ting fit and filthy at Lough­bor­ough’s Race for Life Pretty Muddy – and she’s drag­ging her 10-year-old great niece through the mud with her.

Kristina Lin­nell, 45, and Pop­pie Lin­nell, 10, are tak­ing part at the two events this Sun­day, May 20, at Prest­wold Hall.

The brand new Pretty Muddy Kids event – spe­cially for chil­dren - kicks off at 9.45am, fol­lowed by the adults’ Pretty Muddy at 10.30am.

Kristina, who lives in Bar­rowupon-Soar, with hus­band Tim, has taken on the muddy chal­lenge as a way of hav­ing fun and get­ting back to fit­ness af­ter a year of can­cer treat­ment. She is also keen to raise as much money as pos­si­ble for Can­cer Re­search UK.

Ex­cited to make a muddy splash with her great-aunt is 10-year-old Pop­pie.

Kristina’s sis­ter-in-law Elaine Lin­nell, 64, who is Pop­pie’s grandma, will also be brav­ing the kids’ course Pop­pie.

The Race for Life fam­ily of events also in­cludes the tra­di­tional 5k and 10k Race for Life cour­ses, which thou­sands of women will take part in at Lough­bor­ough Town Cen­tre on June 10 and Vic­to­ria Park, Le­ices­ter, on July 8.
