RUNNERS got in the pink on Saturday when they took part in the Race for Life in Cambridge.
Teams from Crow country joined 7,000 women for the race, with participants raising cash for Cancer Research UK.
Runners included a team from Tesco in Royston.
Mandy Jinkerson, the store’s community champion, said: “Our group ran, jogged and walked around Cambridge city centre and the historic grounds of King’s College.
“All agreed it was a very moving but wonderful party atmosphere. We have all been touched in one way or another by cancer and wanted to support this fantastic fundraising event. I would like to personally thank all the ladies who took part and look forward to doing it all again next year.”
