Jayne Whitehouse, 43, is hoping with one last push to raise over £3,000 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation” (JDRF), which is a charity researching to cure, treat and prevent type 1 diabetes.

Her daughter Faith, 13, has had the condition since she was an infant, prompting Jayne, who is a legal secretary at law firm Keelys, to embark on her goal, which she has labelled the 10 for 10 challenge.

“It’s been quite a year, and with the summer we’ve had being so exceptionally hot , it’s certainly tested me in a way I never thought,” said Jayne.

Jayne’s final challenge will be the Leicester marathon on 14th October.

People can support the charity campaign via Jayne’s JustGiving page.
