The famous Knockhill track played host to the unusual site of 20 female bikers on track during the lunch break of the KDMC Scottish Championship race day, all dressed in pink, and all in aid of fund raising for Macmillan Cancer Support. The willing ladies, together with two game men with pink bras, had a 3 lap parade to raise funds and awareness for Breast Way Round, which consists of a four day tour of Scotland at the end of May.
The Breast Way Round charity is the ‘brainchild’ of ShirleyAnn Barnes of Kilmarnock. ShirleyAnn was inspired to learn to ride at the tender age of 41 by her best friend, Alyson Porter, who battled breast cancer for three years. Sadly, Aly died on 1st July 2008, just after the first event was completed. She wanted so much to be a part of it. Her spirit and determination now lives on, through what is now a yearly event.
All at Knockhill are delighted to be associated with Shirley Ann and her efforts in fund raising. For more information, check out www.breastwayround.com
