Race For Life at Sewerby – Full story and slideshow

Hundreds of women and children from Driffield, the Wolds and further afield braved the miserable cold, windy weather to take part in tonight’s emotional Race For Life at Sewerby.

All ages and abilities took part as they walked and even danced their way round the course, including Driffield’s Natalie Parker, who along with friends, completed the course ahead of her wedding to Driffield footballer Wayne Brooksby on Saturday.

All the women taking part often enter in memory or support of both men and women, who have fought and survived cancer and those who have sadly lost their battles with the disease.

Mostly wearing pink, many write very touching messages on their backs, supporting names of those who are fighting the disease or lost their battle with cancer. This unbelievable night shows how committed everyone is to beating cancer.

One local resident said: “It was an amazing night, and very touching and emotional. You read many sad messages displayed on fronts and backs of shirts, and even on signs they carry, but they all show great spirit and take part with a smile, but often a tear, as we continue to fight this terrible disease.”

Another said: “It was cold, but we did it for those that can’t be here and those that have cancer and also beaten it.

“It’s so important we continue this fight, and events like this mean so much. Although its very sad, I am sure everyone enjoys taking part, but at the same time thinking of those that have been touched by cancer.”

Well done to all those who took part.
