Story: Usha Blackham
21 ladies from Whiteways Primary School took part in the Sheffield Race for Life on Sunday 20th June, either running, jogging or walking - and raising over £400.
Some took training seriously; some started a healthy diet; we all joined in with dressing up in pink. Team spirit was great - and our great sense of pride. We all feel we did something worthwhile and the money we raised is going to a very worthwhile cause.
Usha Blackham said, "We have cancer in the family, my mum went through a rough time and Aunty is still suffering."
Mandy Lawton said, "I took part in 2009's Race for Life after my father-in-law died from multiple brain tumours. It really hit home how this disease can affect everyone. I had never run or even jogged before. Now I try to fit it in twice a week."
