Emotions were running high this morning as a fair proportion of Falmouth’s ladies donned their pink T-shirts to show their support for friends relatives who have been touched by cancer.
Their 5k run, jog or walk took the along the stunning coastline of Gyllngvase, Castle beach and Pendennis Head. A route lined by the last of the magnificent bluebells and amazing sea views, which were all beautified by the glorious sunshine.
For those jogging or running the circuit, it was 5k of heavenly scenery to take their minds of any niggling pains during their 30 to 45 minutes of pounding the asphalt. The walkers took about an hour, but few felt any pressure to finish quickly.
A combination of female solidarity and local supporters were on hand to unite the participants in their fight against this awful illness. Unfortunately, cancer has touched too many of our lives. I am lucky enough to know mainly survivors, but there have been a few who have not been so fortunate and my thoughts were with them.
It certainly was a soulful way to spend a Sunday morning.
