Netballer has a marathon goal in sight

Danielle Thomas, 28, is a keen netballer and, more recently, a runner. She's spent the past year setting herself challenges to overcome - both mentally and physically - and taking on the 2019 London Marathon might just be her biggest one yet...

"I signed up for the Marathon as it is something I have always wanted to do and will be one of my biggest achievements to date," said Danielle, a PA from Collier Row.

"Training is going well but it's tough getting out after having a heavy day at work, especially when it's cold and wet. 

"I'm running for Saint Francis Hospice because they have helped so many people close to me.     

"My friends, family and I think what they do is incredible.    

"Fundraising is going really well. I've already hit 38% of my target on my Justgiving page.

"I hosted a 'Marathon Day' cake sale, raffle and games day at work to raise some extra money.     

" And I'm also going to host a Netball Rally on the 26th March at Basildon Sporting Village."    

"I really am looking forward tCake saleo Marathon Day to finally finish what I have been training for and to see friends and family en-route.

I want to finish in 5 and a half hours, but only time and dedication will tell!"
