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.
