Mum of two Vikki Waring is currently in training for the New York Marathon where she will be running to raise money for BEN.
Vikki has previously run 5K, 10K and half marathons and decided to celebrate turning 40 by running a full marathon. She says she is really looking forward to her run in New York, adding;
"I decided to support BEN as my close friend's relative spent her last days being cared for at BEN's Lynwood Residential Centre. The level of care and support she and her family received was incredible and I was moved to do something to support BEN."
