Race for Life - Hyde Park 2011

Hyde Park, London, England - Sunday 17-July-2100

It is quite an inspirational sight to see 11,000 women wearing pink. All raising money and awareness for Cancer Research UK.

This is Mary's second Race for life this year (see also "Race for Life, Battersea Park 2011")

This time we had Mary's mum with us. What May did not know was that Mary had sneakily entered her without her knowing. As we parked up the car we produced a wheel chair out of the boot and Mary sprang the surprise that she, May, was to be pushed round the 5 km circuit!

The back sign is way for the runners and walkers to dedicate their Race for Life in memory or in celebration of someone they know.

The weather was intermittent so thank goodness for the cheap rain ponchos we bought a couple of years ago.

Thanks are due to Shopmobility, Wandsworth who made it possible through their hire of the wheel chair.
