Leicestershire Police Federation representative Jo Hodson has completed a 10k charity run to raise money for Cancer Research.

And, after completing the run in a personal best time and raising 40 for charity, Jo is already making plans to take part in a similar event next year.

"On 10 July my friend Toyah and I ran our second Race for Life event in 2016 to remember friends who we had lost through cancer and show our support for the research into cancer treatment," says Jo, a Loughborough based sergeant.

"Toyah and I had already ran - stumbled - our way through the 5k pretty muddy run in May at Prestwold Hall wearing pink and loads of mud. We had so much fun and gained such a sense of achievement we challenged ourselves to the 10k in July. We make sure we dress up, Toyah is definitely in charge of the fancy dress but it adds to the sense of fun.

"The run was hard but we still managed it in a personal best time and will do it again next year."
