Last year 300 campaign runners raised £160,000 for breast cancer research.
The registered general nurse at Croft Care Trust will join 54,000 runners on the starting line for the 13.1 mile race in Newcastle on Sunday 19 September in memory of nurse Susan Scott who died from breast cancer.
“Susan was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008 and was initially responding well to treatment. But then it came back in December 2009 and she sadly died a few weeks ago. Susan was my biggest inspiration to train for the Great North Run - if she could go through chemo, then I could run a half marathon so I’ll be doing it as a tribute to her.”
