Jain Campbell, Team Leader from Fylde and Wyre took part in the Cancer Research Race for Life; in memory of a close friend and for a friend who is fighting cancer at the moment.
When Iris, supported in Fylde and Wyre found out, she couldn’t wait to get involved. Jain and Iris joined the group of 15 “Glamorous Diva’s” with lipstick, rollers and hairspray at the ready and set off on their 5K run.
It was a fabulous evening and a great atmosphere, just a sea of pink ladies running and walking down Blackpool promenade all for a really worthy cause.
Iris was very proud when she crossed the line and received her medal in fact she is still wearing it. Iris said: “I had a fantastic night and met some lovely people; everyone was cheering us on as we were going along. I am very proud of finishing the race and can’t wait to do my next one.”
Jain Campbell, AFG Fylde and Wyre Team Leader said :“I am so proud of Iris, she did amazingly well and she is already planning her next one. Move over Mo Farrar haha.”
The Glamorous Divas team raised a total of £1,691 for Cancer Research. The girls finished the night celebrating together with a nice glass of Rose!
