Run Frimley 2016
A record 2,000 people - including trust staff - entered the annual 10km road race and 2.5km fun run on May 1. That’s 300 more than the previous best set last year.
The event has already raised £60,000 for Frimley Health Charity’s Breast Care Appeal, with more money still pouring in.
The cool but bright conditions were perfect for the runners as young Frimley Park patient Elizabeth Jones set them on their way from outside the main hospital entrance.
And 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.
Many fun runners got into the spirit of the occasion – and the Jungle Book theme - by donning colourful costumes.
Proceeds from the event will go towards equipping a dedicated breast unit at Frimley Park.
Sally McLaren, Frimley Health Charity’s head of fundraising, said: “Thank you to 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. They are all playing their part in helping to improve services for breast patients at Frimley Park.”
