WEST Lancashire College Pink Army successfully completed the Race for Life at Southport Prince’s Park and has raised more than £1.200 to date for this worthy cause.
As part of the college’s enrichment programme students and staff from all departments have been participating in a project called This Girl Can Run.
The project was funded by Lancashire Sport as part of the national “This Girl Can” campaign with the aim of the campaign being getting people active, keeping people moving and improving people’s lives.
For five weeks, students had been taking part in weekly training sessions to prepare themselves to complete the Southport Race for Life 5k.
Students were rewarded with a Race for Life T-shirt on completion of five training sessions so that the Pink Army had a united uniform.
More than 40 students and staff completed the 5k to help raise awareness and raise money for further cancer research.
Rebecca Connick, Sports England enrichment coordinator, said: “This is the second year that we have entered as a college and to have so many young adults complete the training and the race is inspirational, I am so proud of them all.
“The West Lancashire College Pink Army will be back to help fund the next big discovery in the fight against cancer.”
