Last Sunday, over 400 runners took part in this year’s ‘Man on the Run Race for Life’ at Hampton, Herne Bay. Amongst them were a number of R’s fans who were competing in memory of our own Neil Roberts who sadly died a few months ago. The Rangers contingent included Dave Robinson, Justin Stone, Multi Sports Manager, and Joe Hylton. Poignantly, Neil’s young son, Charlie, started the race which provoked a loud cheer of ‘You R’s’. After the run, many joined the family, as we had done after Neil’s funeral, at ‘The Plough’, which was Neil’s local.
Well done to everyone that was involved and the aim is that this annual event which promotes awareness of male cancers will include a bigger turn out of R’s fans next year. Neil had bravely competed himself a number of times and had been disappointed that so few local men had previously taken part. Last Sunday Neil would have been looking down proudly.
