On Sunday 20th May, several members of SSF staff, and a group of Active Champions from our Active East programme, took part in Cancer Research UK’s 5K Race for Life in Glasgow. The group were all running as part of “Angela’s Army” in support of our Finance Manager Angela, who was sadly diagnosed with cancer earlier this year.
Despite only signing up for the event a week in advance, the group managed to raise an incredible £702.50 for Cancer Research UK.
SSF staff and young people will be taking part in a number of events across Scotland throughout the year, raising money for cancer charities in support of Angela.
Angela’s mother Renee wrote the poem The Runner on a Wild, Wet Day, in honour of her daughter and her fight against cancer.
