Over two thousand people took part in this year’s Run Frimley event raising funds for our Breast Care Appeal.
The conditions were perfect for the annual 10km road race and the 2.5km fun run held on May the 1st with participants raising over £60,000.
Runners were set on their way by young Frimley Park patient Elizabeth Jones from outside the main hospital entrance.
Over 1,100 runners competed in the 10k road race with an even mix of male and female runners, and another nine hundred adults and children took part in the fun run.
The event was well supported by local businesses, running clubs, schools and voluntary organisations. Many fun runners got into the spirit of the occasion – and the Jungle Book theme – by donning colourful costumes.
Actor Graham Cole, who starred as PC Tony Stamp in long-running TV police drama The Bill, joined Lakeside Country Club owner Bob and partner Barbara Leitch to present the prizes.
Proceeds from the event will go towards equipping a dedicated breast unit at Frimley Park.
We would like to thank all our staff, runners and volunteers who helped to ensure the 11th Run Frimley was such a success. We are always amazed by the enthusiasm and generosity of everyone taking part, all playing a vital part in helping to improve services for breast patients at Frimley Park.
