A Rydal Penrhos teacher took part in a nationwide fundraising initiative in memory of her father.
Leah Crimes, Head of Drama and English at the school, was one of hundreds of women that completed the Cancer Research UK’s Race for Life, which was held in Rhyl on Sunday, June 12.
She completed the five kilometre course in 25 minutes and 30 seconds, and has currently raised £140 for the national charity in memory of her father Wyn Cunnah, who passed away when the teacher was a teenager.
Mrs Crimes, said: I ran in memory of my Dad who died of cancer when I was 17.
“It really affected me and my family; I want to help to make sure no-one has to feel that again.
“I would like to thank everyone who donated to my cause and to Rydal Penrhos for all their support.”
The much-loved teacher oversaw the successful production of the Rydal Penrhos Dramatic Society performance of To Kill a Mockingbird earlier this year, while A and AS Level performance also received widespread praise.
