On a sunny Sunday 9th June, Mrs Elizabeth Backland and her daughter Caroline successfully met the combined challenges of incipient sunburn, a dripping tunnel and 10 kilometres of unforgiving tarmac to complete the Mersey Tunnel 10k run in 1 hour 26 minutes.
"I know the winner completed the race in about 30 minutes, but we're really proud of our time, and that we did it together!"
Elizabeth and Caroline estimate they have already raised approximately £100 for Head and Neck Cancer Research and Support. But it's not too late to show your support and add your donation to their total - just go towww.justgiving.com/aintreeuniversityhospitals
"We'd also like to say a big thank you to all the helpers all along the course. They were great. We couldn't have done it without them."
And we'd like to add our sincere thanks to this amazing mother and daughter team for their fundraising. Without people like them, we wouldn't be able to continue helping fund vitally needed research and on-going support activities.Congratulations and thank you both!
