EMOTIONS were running high at Hudson's Field on Sunday as more than 300 men and children laced up their trainers to take part in the third annual Race for Men.

The Body Lounge Foundation event is all about raising awareness for male cancers while raising money for the Stars Appeal’s Prostate Cancer Fund at Salisbury District Hospital.

It was a day full of dedication, support, happiness and personal achievements with grandfathers, sons and grandsons all running or walking together.

Proceeds from the event, organised by the Body Lounge Foundation, will go to the Stars Appeal’s Prostate Cancer Fund at Salisbury District Hospital.

David Ferris, Steve Giles and Toby Giles, of the Body Lounge Foundation, Salisbury are grateful to everyone who made the race such a big success.

They said: “We would like to thank all the volunteers, supporters and participants, without them this community event wouldn’t be able to take place.

"We welcome everyone to join us in June next year for Race For Men 2018."

Dave Cates, of the Stars Appeal, said: “We thank and salute all those who organised, took part in and supported Race for Men 2017. The money raised will enable the Stars Appeal to provide direct, practical support to local men being treated for prostate cancer by the urology team at SDH.”

Race for Men will return in June 2018.
