An idea inspired by one of Nottingham Forest's senior squad members, Dawn Knight, saw 32 players, members, parents and supporters gather on Nottingham's Victoria Embankment on Sunday to run 5K in aid of Cancer Research.
In hot and sunny weather the race was divided up for runners, joggers and walkers. All completed the course with two members finishing 4th and 5th respectively.
The main aim of the day though was to raise money for the cause and the collective Forest Ladies group are looking to achieve £2,000 for Cancer Research.
Chairperson and participant PJ Andrews said: "Race For Life is an event that touches the hearts of many people and is inspirational to all who participate. Every hand was raised when asked who had known someone who had been affected by Cancer and when you look around and see 4,500 hands in the air it can't fail to have an emotional impact. It was a chance for Forest Ladies to unite and contribute in addition to creating a sense of unity for those that helped each other around the 5K course. It was a moving experience and I would like to thank all 32 Forest Ladies participants for their time, energy and sense of occasion on behalf of the club and, of course, Cancer Research."
