We were proud to present cheques to their two charities for £3580 each, from profit from the Kirste5 memorial races 2016. At a special Quiz N

ight, members of the core team, and charity representatives spoke of the success of this year’s race, the good work that can be done with the donations, and the also confirmed that since its conception 5 years ago, the race and associated events has raised more than £32,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support and Southend Breast Cancer Unit.

The race attracted over 300 runners this year, and

  is a charming 5 mile route heading to Hockley Woods, returning through Cherry Orchard Jubilee Park, New England Wood, & Grove Wood, as well as a 1 mile Family Run. Other fundraising events organised by the Club included a family BBQ, a club Mexican Night, runner’s sponsorship and this Quiz night.

This year’s race was poignant because Kirste’s mum, Sylvia Stedman, and also stance supporter of the rac,e, and friend of Kirste, Brian Lunt passed away before the race. Donations totalling nearing £2000 were also donated in remembrance of Brian, going directly to Southend Breast Cancer Unit.
