Teacher Lynne Wheeler decided to run 12 marathons in 12 months when one of her students suffered severe brain damage. In episode 40 of the Good News Shared podcast Lynne tells us about her incredible marathon challenge. Listen to the interview below:
About Ronald McDonald House Charities
Lynne has already completed three of the twelve marathons, and having inspired her friends and family, is close to reaching her fundraising target for Ronald McDonald House Charities already.
Ronald McDonald House Charities is an independent charity that provides free ‘home away from home’ accommodation to families with seriously-ill children in hospital. The charity enabled the family of Lynnes’ student to stay close by whilst he was being treated in intensive care at London Evelina Children’s Hospital.
Why just run one marathon when you can run one every month in 2016?!
In the interview Lynne tells us why she decided to run a marathon every month in 2016 instead of just running one. As someone who has never run a marathon I cannot imagine the sacrifice and discipline involved in running one every month for a year. What an incredibly inspirational teacher!
