SLIMMERS in Burton joined together to raise around £5,000 for charity as they took part in the Race for Life.
Members of Slimming World from all over the town took part in the event at Hicks Lodge, Moira, over the weekend, taking the total number in the group to more than 100.
Stacey Goodfellow, who runs weekly Slimming World classes in Branston and Rolleston, told the Mail: "It was a fantastic event with a real feel-good atmosphere. We saw young, old, male and female participants enter, with a range of different abilities and fitness levels. Entrants could run, walk, cycle or skate across the finish line, whatever they wanted – as long as they crossed the finish line we didn't mind at all."
It was part of a wider Slimming World does Race for Life event taking place around the UK.
Many of the slimmers took the opportunity of the race to get fitter and more active during their weight loss journey.
All the money raised through the run will go to Cancer Research UK to fund investigations into life-saving treatments for cancer.
