The achievement was even more marked given that Donna had not been able to do extensive training for the marathon and in fact had spent a week in hospital just two weeks prior to the event!
Donna commented: “It was a very hard 13.1 miles and one of the biggest challenges I have ever faced! My husband and I were running for cancer research and between us we raised a staggering £500."
