Mad for it! – Fundraisers throw themselves into charity fun run. PICTURE GALLERY SPECIAL.


Fundraisers ran, walked and hobbled the distance for the 10th annual Mad March Hare event to raise money for the Breast Cancer Now Charity.

Many of the have-a-go participants threw themselves into the fun by dressing in pink or sporting an array of weird and wonderful fancy dress; others jogged along with their little ones in pushchairs or were tugged along by their four-legged friends.

The event, on Sunday, say hundreds of people take on the 5k or 10k routes around West Swindon and Lydiard Park

– starting and finishing at Lydiard Park Academy in Grange Park.

Breast Cancer Now is the UK’s largest breast cancer charity, created by the merger of Breast Cancer Campaign and Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
