Karen is running on behalf of North Devon charity ChemoHero, set up by Lisa Wallis, who she describes as the most inspirational young woman I have ever met. She won a ballot place for the 2018 marathon but deferred it to this year as her daughter was getting married. She said: When you get a ballot place it means you have automatic entry and dont have to raise any money, however I was asked so many times who I was running for that I wanted to make a difference to a local charity in North Devon. ChemoHero makes sure that every patient that attends hospital for their first session of chemotherapy leaves with a box of kindness a box just for them full of wonderful products to make their cancer journey more comfortable and with lots of treats too. In February a quiz night at the George and Dragon, in Ilfracombe, raised £900, a new pub record. You can sponsor Karen at https:\/\/uk.virginmoneygiving.com\/KarenGrant10 .
