Race for Life with the CPL Racers
Tuesday, 09 July 2013
Sunday 7th July the CPL Racers joined the Race for Life and raised over £400 in donations.
The CPL Racers consisted of women from the CPL Training group and their relatives. An estimated 4,000 women ran the combined 5k and 10k race in Liverpool and another 6,000 people came to support the girls and the cause. The race was held on the hottest day of the year so far, reaching 27°C.
The six girls felt the burn whilst running, jogging and walking through Sefton Park, but they all did it in less than an hour!
The CPL Racers’ podium:
1st place: Lisa at 27 minutes
2nd place: Sara at 34 minutes
3rd place: Karen at 35 minutes
4th place: Sarah-Marie at 38 minutes
Joint 5th place: Sophie and Steph at 48 minutes
Lisa Speirs, junior graphic designer at CPL Online and ‘gold medal’ holder, said: “I really enjoyed the event; the atmosphere of everyone supporting the same cause together was a great feeling. Also, Race for Life has inspired me start training again – now I’m aiming to do the 10k race next year and raise even more money to help beat cancer!”
So, the question on everyone’s lips: how much did the CPL Racers raise?
The majority of donations came from people at the CPL Training Group and their family and friends, but some of CPL’s clients also donated, including Dennis Forsyth from Cheers Café, Bar & Tavern, Fraserburgh. Plus, a huge chunk of money came from the florists at Karen’s workplace Hartley’s Nurseries, Lydiate – so a big thanks to everyone that donated to the grand total of £425!
