Putting her heart into run

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - MARATHON NEWS -

A WOMAN from Bea­cons­field is set to take on the chal­lenge of a life­time when she runs the Lon­don Marathon.

Rachel Brown­hill has spent months in prepa­ra­tion for the event, which takes place on Sun­day and is aim­ing to raise money for char­ity as part of her run.

Rachel is hop­ing to raise cash for the Bromp­ton Foun­da­tion af­ter her friend’s three-year-old daugh­ter Chloe, who has un­der­gone three rounds of open heart surgery at the Royal Bromp­ton Hospi­tal.

She said: “With each op­er­a­tion Chloe’s speedy re­cov­ery has sur­passed sur­geon’s ex­pec­ta­tions and her in­cred­i­ble strength and de­ter­mi­na­tion along the way has been an ab­so­lute in­spi­ra­tion, she’s a true su­per­hero.

“For those that know Chloe’s mum, Steph, this will come as no sur­prise. Like mother, like daugh­ter. She has been a tough cookie from day one, and her pos­i­tiv­ity and strength has been amaz­ing, and I am one very proud friend.

“This is my chance to per­son­ally thank the Royal Bromp­ton for every­thing they have done up un­til now for Chloe, Steph and Nick and the sup­port they con­tinue to give.”

Rachel is aim­ing to raise at least £1,000 and if you would like to spon­sor Rachel, go to www. vir­gin­money­giv­ing.com/ rachel­brown­hill.
