Lorraine’s story: Why I ran a marathon

In 2018 I was fortunate enough to secure a place in the Virgin London Marathon through Southampton Hospital Charity.
 
Taking part in this race had always been a dream of mine. I turned 50 last September and felt that if I didn’t get the chance now, I probably would never do it!
 
I work within cancer care in Southampton General Hospital, and so was aware that the Cancer Information and Support Centre (Macmillan Centre) needed help as the centre relies solely on donations, and has no central funding. I lost my mum very suddenly to cancer, and the centre supported me through a really difficult time. It was a cause very close to my heart, so I pledged to raise £5,000.
 
The actual day of the marathon was amazing. The atmosphere and support around the course was fantastic. I managed to complete the run in five hours and 54 minutes despite it being the hottest London Marathon on record. It was hard, but it was an amazing experience and one that I feel privileged to have been a part of.
 
Overall I raised £10,198.79 (including Gift Aid), and am truly delighted I managed to smash my fundraising target!
