Hundreds of people lined the streets of Harleston and the surrounding villages last year to support 93 Pink Ladies, which generated �32,000 for Cancer Research UK.
This year, 115 women have signed up for the popular 20 mile circular drive, which will take them through Brockdish and Harleston at about 12.30pm.
