Gallery: Fundraisers in the pink at university Race for Life

THOUSANDS of fundraisers looked pretty in pink as they stepped out to help join the fight against cancer.

The Race for Life took place yesterday at the University of Essex in Colchester.

They walked, jogged or ran around the 5km course in aid of Cancer Research UK.

Many of those involved wore something pink – from cowboy hats and tutus to scarves and bunny ears.

Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life is the largest women-only fundraising event in the UK.
