TCRC members swap running trainers for hiking boots to help fundraise
Three Counties Running Club members swapped running trainers for hiking boots to help fundraise for the Oncology Unit at Peterborough City Hospital.
TCRC teamed up with friends, family and the staff from the ambulatory care unit from Peterborough City Hospital to help support fellow club runner and friend Tracy Pratt.
Tracy, who is a nurse practitioner, was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and is currently receiving treatment on the haematology/oncology unit.
Her work colleagues had organised a cake stall, head shave, 100-mile static bike ride and a 5k charity walk around Ferry Meadows who also kindly let them have the use of the cafe area and facilities to accommodate everyone who came.
So far they have managed to raise £2,443 and if anyone would like to still donate the link is open until February 13. https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/communicationstream1
