our male colleagues helped by organising a pink balloon race, where we purchased a balloon of hope tying our personal message to it and releasing it into the sky just before we headed to the race, this raised a further £80.”
Friends Catherine Westwood, Ashley Ferguson and Jade Watters, all from Rutherglen, did the race and have so far collected over £180. They ran it in less than 40 minutes.
Jade said: “We’re really pleased we took part in this event. It was a great day, and to raise money for such a fantastic cause was a real bonus. Now we’re going to start training for the 10K!”
For many of the runners, there was a personal reason for raising money.
One of those who took part was Ellie Jamieson ( 10), a pupil at Bankhead Primary.
Her mum Libby said: “Ellie took part with her two aunts Elaine and Caroline, from Rutherglen, on behalf of our mum and her gran, that was dignosed with breast cancer last year and going through treatment just now.”
Cambuslang’s Alison Grant took part with her daughters Jodie and Lucy.
She said: “It was Jodie’s second but Lucy’s first. They did really well considering the weather!”
