Capitol Team smash target in Horsham's Race For Life!

There was a rosy glow from a large group of people wearing all shades of pink in the Horsham Race For Life on Sunday 12 September.


After the past 18 months when Covid-19 has delayed vital cancer trials, the Race for Life has never been more important to raise money for Cancer Research.


Since the first Race For Life in Horsham Park back in 2013, The Capitol have entered a team every year helping to raise a staggering £3million from the Horsham event.


This year saw a team of 12 ladies with a connection to The Capitol taking a different 5K route to previous years in the park rather than a circular route via the town and Chesworth Park.


Many Capitol customers and retired members of staff came out to support the ladies on their challenge and cheered them along the way.


There was a great atmosphere as lots of people took part in a sea of pink around the park. A warm up took place ahead of the race and everyone took a few minutes to reflect on why they were running ahead of the start which was quite emotional for many.


So far the Capitol ladies have smashed their target of £500 and raised over £1000. There’s still time to donate online fundraise.cancerresearchuk.org/team/the-capitol-theatre and any donations would be welcome at The Capitol’s Box Office.


The Capitol Team included: Cat Fuller, Sally Bennett, Karen Wrigley, Mel McAlpine, Tracey Grubb, Sue Arnold, Beth Wrigley, Sarah, Lois & Fleur Arnold, Elaine Gillard and Alison Keyzor.
