Keen runner Danielle White completed the 2019 London Marathon in aid of Prospect Hospice, raising £1,076.40.
Danielle wanted to recognise the care Prospect Hospice gives to people, including her best friend’s mum who was cared for by the hospice.
Having previously been unable to gain a place in the London Marathon, Danielle was over the moon to find out that she had been successful for the 2019 event.
Although Danielle has always been a keen runner, running various terrains, distances and obstacles courses, she was overcome by sheer panic at the thought of running for over four hours, doubling anything that she had achieved before.
Danielle set herself a goal of completing the marathon in under four hours, and added extra motivation by deciding to raise money for Prospect Hospice.
Danielle had to make sacrifices so that she could commit to following the official training plan. Having the company of a friend or family member cycling alongside her on the longest runs helped her through the training.
Supported on the day by family and friends, Danielle completed the race in four hours and five minutes.
Danielle said: “The hardest part was when I got leg cramps at around 17 miles. The crowd were amazing and helped me through it, I could hear them call my name as I ran.”
Sally Bere, Challenges Fundraiser said: “Our thanks goes to Danielle on completing the London Marathon, and supporting Prospect Hospice raising a staggering £1,076.40.”
