Thanks to all park runners

I would like to extend a huge thank you to the participants and organisers of the South Shields 5k Park Run.

On Saturday, October 24, more than 300 people took part in a special Big Pink Park Run to raise awareness of breast cancer and also help the Big Pink Dress Fundraising Team to raise funds for Breast Cancer Now.

A huge number of runners embraced the challenge to “Wear It Pink” with fancy dress costumes galore, they also brought in a fantastic selection of cakes, which helped raise £305 on the day.

I would also like to thank The Sanddancer pub for opening early for teas and coffees and allowing us to bring in the cakes and collect donations.

Another successful event.

Hilary Jago,
