FACT (Fighting all Cancers Together) hosted a series of events, which included its third annual WigWalk and FACT North East Cancer 5k and 10k races, as well as holding a celebration of Armed Forces Day and a Garden Party!

The family-friendly day of events took place on Sunday 30th June at the Derwent Walk, Swalwell, and on the grounds of Swalwell Cricket Club, and was attended by hundreds of walkers and runners of all ages and abilities and families turned out in support.

The Armed Forces Day and garden party was held as a celebration for anyone connected to the armed forces and was well attended.

Joanne Smith, Founder and Chief Executive of FACT, said:

“I would like to thank our sponsors, volunteers, fundraisers and all those who came along and took part for their continued help and support, without such kind people these events wouldn’t be possible and our charity couldn’t exist.  Everyone at FACT is truly grateful.”

The date for next year’s WigWalk and NE Cancer Run has already been confirmed as Sunday 28th June 2020.  Registration will be opening soon.
