Run or Dye

(l-r) Kat, Stacey, Adele, Joanna, and Cat

In October Joanna Maher and a group of friends, Kat, Stacey, Adele and Cat took part in Run or Dye, a 5k race at Southampton Sports Centre.  A race with a difference - everytime you complete a kilometre you covered in coloured dye!  

To be honest the team were covered in coloured dye before they even started!

The team were running to raise funds for the QE2 Activity Centre in memory of their friend James Male.  James was a  keen sailor and canoeist who was one of the crew of the yacht Cheeky Rafiki which was lost in the Atlantic earlier this year.

Says Joanna: 'Although we are definitely not runners we all did really well and all finished in under 40mins.   Knowing that the money was going to something so loved by James made every bit worthwhile and we would 100% do it again! Such a fabulous event.'

The money raised will go towards adding to QE2's fleet of kayaks. 

Thanks, you guys!
