A POPULAR ‘Santa Dash’ and fun run in memory of a young woman who died of cancer took place at the weekend.

The event was held at Manvers Lake in memory of Hana Szczepkowski, a 31-year-old Mexborough teacher who lost her life to cancer.

The event is held to keep her memory alive and raise funds for the cancer charity Team Verrico who gave her hope and supported her through her illness.

Hundreds of people showed up on the day to support the cause.
