Rebecca completes Great Manchester Run for Di Smith
Tuesday, 22 May 2012
On Sunday 20 May, Rebecca Yorke ran her first 10k in the Great Manchester Run, the largest event of its kind, with 40,000 runners taking part. She completed the course in 62 mins and 13 seconds – that's a respectable 17764th place!
She was running to honour her late friend and Hebden Bridge Arts Festival colleague Di Smith who sadly died from cancer last summer.
Rebecca has so far raised £880 for Macmillan Cancer Research and would like to thank everyone who has sponsored her so far. She told the Hebden Bridge Web that thinking about their support really helped her get round Manchester yesterday.
"It would be just fantastic to reach the £1000 mark" and anyone who would like to make a donation can still do so at her Just Giving web page or by contacting her on 01422 842546.
