BRANDED! have been running the Race for Life since 2012 and on Sunday 16 September 2018, members of BRANDED! as well as friends and family (yet again) took part in the Race for Life 5km at the York Knavesmire.

Armed with pink leisure wear, tutus and glitter, over 1,700 people participated in the run – 13 of those people being BRANDED! team members. After a warm up to the songs ‘Baby Shark’ and ‘Sexy and You Know It’, a sea of pink participants got ready at the start line to walk, jog and run the race. At each distance point, there was a member of the Race for Life team cheering everyone on and providing motivation to keep going.

Down the home stretch the crowd was cheering everyone on – including the odd dog and pushchair pusher. Once we had crossed the finish line, we were handed our Cancer Research UK medals and a bottle of water for our efforts. Each BRANDED! team member finished the race in under an hour – with the quickest time being 38 minutes.

In total, £210,000 was raised on the day and BRANDED! collectively raised in excess of £800.

Thank you to all those who took part and to everyone who supported our efforts.
