A Mirfield woman has gone on the run for charity.
Sue Levinson, pictured, this year set herself a personal challenge – to complete five 10k runs in five months to raise £500.
Not only has she succeeded in her quest, she has gone further and raised £700 for her chosen charities, Arthritis Research UK and Cancer Research UK.
Sue’s first run was in the Vale of Clwyd on March 30 and she has just completed her final run, back in Wales, at the Llyn Alwen 11k.
Sue, who also ran in Nottinghamshire, Leeds and Huddersfield, said: “It wasn’t easy and it’s certainly been a challenge.”
Sue said she wanted to thank family and friends who backed her all the way and ensured she beat her fundraising target.
She’s now looking forward to a few months off before planning her challenge for 2015.
Sue was praised by David Fisher, regional fundraising manager at Arthritis Research UK, who said: “Sue is an inspiration and we really appreciate her fantastic hard work, both training and fundraising.
“Arthritis is the biggest cause of pain and disability in the UK with one in six people of all ages affected by this debilitating disease.”
More than 10 million people in the UK live with the pain and disability caused by arthritis and other musculoskeletal conditions.
Arthritis can affect people of all ages, having a devastating impact on their quality of life.
