Cash for cancer nurses

Rachel Comotto: her second London Marathon

Among the local runners who completed the London Marathon on Sunday April 13 was Rachel Comotto from Winchelsea. She has so far raised over £550 for Macmillan Cancer Support. This year was Rachel’s second London Marathon which she completed in 3 hours and 54 minutes.

Despite the physical challenge, she was enthusiastic about the event. “It was a privilege to run in such a well organised and supported event. The crowd was fantastic and got behind every single runner. Macmillan nurses were also great. They organised a pasta party for us the night before and a great reception afterwards. They had 950 runners targeting £1.5 million, which will pay for 26 nurses for a year. And thanks to all my sponsors.” Rachel plans to run the London Marathon again next year.
