Mum’s epic challenge

Have your say

A DOTING mum will be going the distance in a fitness challenge to raise funds towards a potentially life-changing operation in America for her son who has cerebal palsy.

Rachel Saxton, 33, from Intake, Sheffield, is taking on the Brecon Beacon Challenge for son Ollie, three.

The challenge consists of an 11km canoe ride, 25km cycle and a 11km run - all in 10 hours. Money raised will go to the Send Ollie To St Louis campaign to pay for Ollie, a pupil at Intake Pre-School, to undergo a procedure to reduce the spascity in his spine, helping him move more freely.
