Cambridge Science Park "Children in Need" Fun Run - 17th November 2006

Qualcomm Cambridge enters a team into this year's Fun Run on the Cambridge Science Park, in aid of Children in Need. The race is a relay, with each runner doing a lap around the Science Park (about 1 mile). Some of the teams even turn out in fancy dress: there's a team from "The Wizard of Oz", Pirates of the Carribean and a cool trip down retro-gaming memory lane with a team of Ghosts and a hungry Pac-Man.
