A WATERLOO woman is gearing up to take part in the Great North Run.
Wendy Sunderland will run the 13-mile race on September 26.
She is being sponsored to raise money for Sense, a charity for deaf and blind people.
Wendy, 37, is a single mother with a son aged nine. She has never tackled the Great North Run, but has taken part in marathons.
She said: "I'm really into running. I do it about three times a week."
The Great North Run goes from Newcastle to South Shields.
Anyone who wants to sponsor her should contact Sense on 0207 5613359 or visit www.justgiving. com/wendysunder land
