This morning (30 May) a record-breaking 3000 children from 55 primary schools across Glasgow took part in The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice's 10th Go Yellow 5k Walk.
Sponsored by Robert Wiseman Dairies, the annual fundraiser was another fun-filled event as more children than ever put on their trainers and yellows caps in a bid to raise as much as they can for the Hospice.

"This is our tenth year of supporting Go Yellow and we are delighted to be able to contribute to such a great day out for local children."
In addition to the walk itself, the children were able to enjoy a whole host of outdoor activities ranging from football, rugby and golf to cheerleading and netball.
A further highlight was the race between Harvey the Heart, the Hospice's mascot, and mascots from a number of other organisations, including Wiseman Dairies' Wanda the Cow, Rangers' Broxi Bear, Celtic's Hoopy the Huddle Hound and Real Radio's Barry the Bassett.
Joyce Ross, Community Fundraiser at the Hospice, said:
"The Go Yellow 5k Walk helps educate children on the crucial work the Hospice does whilst also providing a challenge for them. It is also an excellent end-of-term opportunity for schools across Glasgow to get together and have a fun day out."
