Runners join forces to fight cancer battle
Rutherglen and Cambuslang residents were thinking pink earlier this month.
A number of locals took part in the Race For Life, to raise money for Cancer Research, which started and finished on Glasgow Green.
People of all ages made their way round the 5K course, around Glasgow city centre, and each had their own reason for doing it.
Some were taking part to celebrate their beating cancer, while others were doing it to remember their loved ones.
Many of the people taking part were sponsored to complete the course, and one group of Rutherglen women were taking part in a different way.
Cheryl Burnett said: “We had a fantastic day at the Race For Life! Myself, Karen Watson, Naomi Watt and everyone from Eclipse powerhoop, powerhooped the whole 5k for charity. Amazing experience!”
A group of friends, Angie’s Army, all from Rutherglen, took part in the Race For Life.
Adele McIntye said: “Angie’s army is a group of family and friends. We are called this as my friend Angie McShane was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2013 . Angie has now been clear of cancer for a year, and her army is getting stronger and stronger! We will keep on fighting cancer.”
