My Girls did it.......

Yesterday was was the Race For Life and my eldest daughter Sally and our youngest granddaughter Grace who is only 5 did the 5K walk in Taunton....its was so hot almost 30 deg and how Grace walked all that way in all that heat I don't know..
But girls I am so proud of you both....they ran on behalf of my Mum and also my Brother in law son who we lost at the age of 8......  Sally and Grace collected   £185 so a big 'thank you' to my friends who supported them...
Grace bless her says her 'hips' hurt today....it's show and tell in school today also I bet she cant wait to show off her medal....


                                          Before the race               
                                at the finishing post
  
                   Sally and Grace showing off their well deserved Medals

Well done Sally and Grace, you have all the rights to be proud of them both more so of little Grace not many 5year olds would have walked that far in normal heat let alone 30 degrees.
