Tunbridge Wells Kids On The Go were celebrating after completing the annual Hospice in the Weald 10k race on September 25.
Eighteen participants signed up to be part of Team Kids On The Go and ran, walked and mingled their way round the unforgiving, hilly route, grateful that the recent heatwave had cooled.
Competing in memory of family and friends, Jilly Thomas and Mary Stoner could not contain their emotion when the race was over as they were overwhelmed with relief and pride.
Huge thanks go to all the local people who lined the roads to cheer them on and gave money.
So far they have raised £2,925. If you would like to make a donation, visit uk.virginmoneygiving.com and search for Kids On The Go.
