Lily Smith after completing the first of seven marathons with her mum Julie. Picture: The Smith family

Lily and I completed our first marathon on Monday.  We started our second one yesterday and are already 10 miles into this week's marathon.  Lily is growing stronger with every run and really enjoying the challenge.  We have managed to get an article about our fundraiser in the Lowestoft Journal this week so hopefully it will raise the profile even more for the Raise a Rainbow Appeal.  We cannot believe the amount of support we have received so far.  In fact, we have already surpassed our £262 target and have many people promising more donations.

We will continue to keep you posted with our progress.

Best wishes

Julie
