Marathon series of fundraisers for siblings

A member of the Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service team has embarked on a marathon series of fundraisers for the charity.

Governance lead Julie Hughes will tackle a series of runs with her brother Neil Stevens, which will see them clock up about 600 miles each in six months, culminating in the 100 mile Cotswold Way Challenge in June.

The 51-year-old won the Women's Running magazine's inspirational runner award in September after telling her story of how the loss of her husband Simon had encouraged her to return to the sport.

"My brother and I have been running together over the past few months, both of us finding comfort in running for different personal reasons," said Julie, a former Windsor Girls' School pupil.

"To turn our running to good we have committed to a series of challenges for the first six months of 2015.

"Our challenges include the Reading half Marathon in March, the Paris and London Marathons in April, just two weeks apart, and the Cotswold Way 100 mile challenge in June.

The pair are being sponsored per mile and already passed the 100 mile mark in January alone.
