Thousands enter Kirkcaldy’s Race for Life

KIRKCALDY’S Beveridge Park was a sea of pink on Sunday as thousands of Fifers took part in this year’s Race for Life.

More than 2000 women, including cancer survivors and people taking part in memory or celebration of their loved ones - united for 5k.

Last year, the participants in the Lang Toun raised an amazing £128,000 for Cancer Research UK and organisers hope that this year Race for Life supporters will be just as generous and raise even more for life saving research.

Susan Johnstone, the charity’s national event manager for Race for Life in Scotland, said: “The support we have received in Kirkcaldy has been absolutely tremendous and we are thrilled that so many women entered Race for Life here.

“We want to say a heart-felt thanks to everyone who took part or supported our participants, as well as the wonderful volunteers who helped make it happen.

“Now the big day is over, we are asking our supporters to take one last step - by returning the money they have raised so that we can go on funding much needed research.

“I feel so proud and grateful to everyone who supports Race for Life in Kirkcaldy.

“What better way to fight back against cancer than by raising funds to beat the disease.”
