AMAZING terminal cancer sufferer Jane Tomlinson is to receive another honorary degree to go with one she has from Huddersfield University.

The brave 42-year-old, a former radiographer from Rothwell, near Leeds, has raised £1.4m for charity after being diagnosed with incurable breast cancer in 2000.

The courageous mum-of-three has now been awarded a degree from Hull University, to be received on the day her eldest daughter is due to graduate.

Mrs Tomlinson said: "I am extremely thrilled to be receiving the honorary degree from Hull University. We have been looking forward to the day for some time.

"It is particularly special because it coincides with Suzanne becoming a graduate of the university, too."

Mrs Tomlinson has won admiration for completing challenges, including three London Marathons, the New York Marathon and three London Triathlons.

She has also done a full `ironman' competition, which comprises a four-kilometre swim, an 18-kilometre bike ride and a marathon.

Most recently, she braved terrible conditions as she cycled across the USA, starting at the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco and finishing in New York.

She was joined on the epic ride by Martyn Hollingworth, 40, originally from Huddersfield.

Mrs Tomlinson was awarded an honorary degree by Huddersfield University in 2003 in recognition of her efforts.

She has raised money for cancer and children's charities, including Macmillan Cancer Relief, Sparks, Damon Runyon Cancer Research and Hannah House children's care home in Rothwell.

JANE Tomlinson is launching a 10-kilometre run to encourage as many people as possible to raise money for charity.

After raising more than £1.4m for her appeal through a series of challenges, the mum-of-three said she wanted to create a mass participation event for people of all abilities.

The run, which will take place in Leeds on Sunday, June 24, is also backed by a host of celebrities and sports stars, including the world's fastest women's marathon runner Paula Radcliffe, five-time Olympic rowing gold medallist Sir Steve Redgrave and model Nell McAndrew, who plans to run.

Mrs Tomlinson, said: "We wanted to create something that people could be involved in for themselves, a mass participation event. So the Leeds 10k Run for All was born.

"This is an excellent opportunity for you to do something worthwhile for yourself while helping others."

About 10,000 people are expected to take part in the run, which will start and finish on the Headrow in the city centre.

Places will be available on a first come, first served basis.

Nell McAndrew said: "Jane has led the way on many occasions with inspirational feats that have left us all in awe of her absolute determination and keen desire to help others."

Mrs Tomlinson will not be running because of her deteriorating health.
