Donna plans to run one mile every hour for 24 hours!
On the longest day of 2020 Donna Timmis plans to run a marathon.
However, not liking the idea of running 26.2 miles in one go, she will be splitting the distance over 24 hours and run 3.2 miles in the first hour and then a mile every other hour for the next 23 hours!
The running will be a challenge - but so will be the sleep deprivation as the challenge goes on!
Donna felt it would be a good opportunity to use the challenge to raise money and awareness for Bowel Cancer West.
Towards the end of 2015 her Mum was diagnosed with bowel cancer and in early 2016 after chemo and radiotherapy, she underwent surgery.
It's been a long road to recovery, but the good news is she has been cancer free since then.
She has been an inspiration and great support for Donna.
