A MUM-OF-TWO is putting on her running shoes to raise cash to build a children's hospice.
Christine Mitchell, 41 (pictured), is preparing to take part in the Edinburgh Marathon to raise money for the West Yorkshire Forget Me Not Trust.
Christine, of Marsden Lane, Marsden, decided to run the 26-mile course after failing to secure a place in the London Marathon.
Now, with rigorous training under way, she feels ready for the June 12 event.
She said: "The course is more hilly than London. But I have been training in this area where it is hilly, so I am confident."
Married Christine, who has children aged 16 and 17, said her family will be there on the day.
