Walkers from across the north-east have marched their way to raising £62,000.
More than 750 people took part in this year’s Twilight Walk in Inverurie to raise cash for Cancer Research UK.
Now organisers have revealed this year’s total means that since 2010, the 10K walk has raised nearly £200,000 for the charity.
Angie Shearer, one of the event organisers, said: “Every year we are overwhelmed by the level of support the Twilight Walk receives.
“We were blown away with the 755 participants and the astonishing total raised for Cancer Research UK’s world class life-saving work.”
Miss Shearer, of Huntly, was made an MBE in recognition of her work for the charity in the Queen’s New Years honours, and will attend Holyrood Palace in Edinburgh on July 1 to collect it.
The next day, she will carry the Queen’s Baton for the Commonwealth Games as it passes through Huntly.
The PE teacher at Banff Academy added: “I’ve lost my granny and auntie to cancer, but we keep fundraising as a family because we know that one day we will win the fight against cancer and with the amazing support of the north-east community we will beat cancer sooner.”
Miss Shearer’s cousins, who lost their mother Sandra Morrison, of Inverurie, to the disease last summer, also took part in this year’s walk along with other relatives.
Laura Morrison, and her sister Susan, said: “It is such a great experience to be involved in the Twilight Walk and helping raise funds for a charity close to our hearts.
“It is an amazing event and it is inspiration seeing so many people coming together to help make a difference.”
Next year’s walk will be held on May 8.
