Local accountant Kelly-Anne Tudge is running the Bath Half Marathon on 11 March to raise funds for CLIC Sargent, the UK's leading charity supporting children with cancer.
Kelly-Anne has first hand knowledge of the suffering CLIC Sargent work to alleviate, having been devastated when a friend's three year old died of leukaemia last year.
She is very keen to raise as much as possible, and her colleagues at Crowe Clark Whitehill in Cheltenham are sponsoring her to help raise her target sum. Kelly-Anne would be very grateful for wider support and is keen to get her message out to everyone as she trains for the half marathon next month.

Speaking to the local media this week, David Humphreys insisted that Gloucester are looking forward to kicking off the new European Rugby Challenge Cup against Brive on Thursday evening, although an unfamiliar opponent and a five day turnaround will pose a challenge.
Director of Rugby David Humphreys felt that his Gloucester side put themselves in a position to put Saracens under real pressure at Allianz Park on Saturday, praising his team's commitment and defence, while admitting that a lack of accuracy hit their chances in the second half.
Speaking to the local media at Allianz Park, Tom Savage was disappointed after the defeat at Saracens, but claimed Gloucester did plenty of good things and could've taken more than a losing bonus point.
In case you missed it, there was plenty of activity on the official Gloucester Rugby website following the 55-0 European Rugby Challenge Cup win over CA Brive, including a number of post match video interviews.
The Cherry and Whites ran in six tries in beating CA Brive 55-0 on Thursday night. An emphatic second half performance saw the hosts run in five tries to get the European campaign off to a flying start.
Gloucester took their time to go through the gears in Thursday's European Rugby Challenge Cup opener but turned on the style in the second half to emerge 55-0 winners and get their campaign off to a winning start.
