Support for her efforts has seen a huge response raising over £5,000 all of which will go to the Epilepsy Society to fund research.

Rachael said;

“I’m so proud of everyone who has donated and supported me. The main aim of running the is to raise awareness of SUDEP and Epilepsy, and to do something truly amazing in Tom’s memory.”

“He knew it was something I always wanted to do. I hope I make him and his wonderful family proud.”

“The more money we can raise the better, as it all goes to those living with Epilepsy. I think it’s important to understand that this illness can be fatal, it shouldn’t take lives.”

“By donating you are helping to do your part in finding a cure, and doing something amazing in Tom’s name.”

When asked about her preparations she said;

“I haven’t run a marathon before. I’ve been running between 8 miles and 20 to train for the since Christmas.”
