Cancer Research UK painted the city pink as Race for Life flash mobs took over the city on Saturday (May 18).

Transported on a Race for Life branded pink bus, provided by Stagecoach, the dancing began at Parkside before heading to Lion Yard, market square, Quayside and The Grafton centre.

The flash mobs were designed to encourage men and women to take part in the fundraising run, which takes place in Cambridge on July 7.

Sarah Taylor, community sports officer at Better gym, organised the flash mob for the third year in a row, working with lead dancer and choreographer, Stephanie Baudino, and supporting lead dancers, Hannah Crowther and Orsolya Ihasz.

Sarah said: “The girls were full of vibrant energy which was infectious – people who were shopping were joining in dancing as well.”

Michelle Hargreaves, managing director of Stagecoach East, added: “Stagecoach East has a long history of support for CRUK, having raised more than £50,000 for the charity over the last 10 years.

“The pink bus offers a symbol of hope as we journey together towards new treatments and cures that will enable us to defeat cancer.”

Cambridge is an important research hub for the charity, with more than £49million invested in research and clinical trials in the city last year.
