Sevenoaks runners help turn town pink for another week of fundraising for Breast Cancer Care
THERE was a pink invasion in Sevenoaks on Saturday when more than 100 women and men took part in the fifth Pink Week Run/Walk to raise awareness and money for the breast cancer support charity, Breast Cancer Care.
The organisers have expressed a huge thank you not only to the runners and walkers but also to shoppers who also contributed another £251.73 during a street collection.
This was just one of the events being held in Sevenoaks for Pink Week and details of others can be found in the What’s On section of this website
Sam Palmer, the founder of Sevenoaks Ladies Joggers (SLJ) who organises the event, said: “The Pink Run is one of my favourite events of the SLJ calendar. What started as a few runners wearing pink in 2014, has now become an opportunity for anyone to join us to raise money for Breast Cancer Care.”
Pink Week organiser Steph Harrison said: “This years Run/Walk was the best ever. Every year this event gets bigger and better and with the continued support of so many wonderful people it can only continue to do so.
“Sam and her coaches raise a huge amount every year for this wonderful charity and I am so grateful for their efforts and kindness. I would also like to thank the Mayor, Cllr Roderick Hogarth for his welcome speech, Town Clerk, Linda Larter for her continued support and Ann Ruddle for welcoming every participant back with the best cakes around. As always, it was a team effort.”
