THE reputation of Crow Country’s own charity challenge has spread far and wide – attracting participants from all over Herts.

The Pink Ribbon Run/Walk will this year raise money for a specialist cancer unit for teenagers and young people at Addenbrooke’s Hospital.

Students from Buntingford’s Freman College have joined the hundreds of participants who will tackle either the three or five kilometre course.

One member of staff said: “This will be the fifth year that Freman College has entered and marshalled the event.

“Staff and students have raised more than £12,000 for Pink Ribbon charities.”

“Some of the students participating love to dress up and have fun with their friends, whereas others prefer to run for their best time.”

The Pink Ribbon Run/Walk, this year on June 26, has raised money for a number of charities, and is supporting the Teenage Cancer Trust.

The cost is £12 for adults and half-price for children.

It includes a T-Shirt which will be sent to everyone who enters and at the end of the Run/Walk all participants will receive a medal.

Forms can be found in most retailers in Royston town centre, or by visiting
