Hospital Radio Colchester helps out at the 2015 Charity Santa Fun Run

Sunday 6th December saw Castle park "invaded" by over 500 fun runners taking part in the annual Santa Run, organised by the Colchester Hospitals Charity (CoHoC). There were two routes which runners could choose from a 5km route and a 3km route. Money raised will go to the Colchester Hospital Charity Cancer Centre Campaign.

 

The weather was extremely kind, albeit a little bit chilly, and great fun was had by all.

The Hospital Radio Colchester Roadshow along with one of our presenters dressed fpr the occasion and collecting money for the charity.  Can you guess who it is?

A veritable "army" of Santas warming up before the start of the races.

Not everybody dressed as Santa for the run:

 

On the left we see Tom Brown as a Snowman and his friend Hannah Brady as a Christmas tree. Tom himself suffered with cancer when he was younger and was only too happy to take part in this year's event.
