A SHEFFIELD legal eagle is flying to the Big Apple - to pound the streets for charity.
Solicitor Natalie Cosgrove is taking part in the New York Marathon next month.
And she’s doing it in a very good cause - to raise funds for Bowel Cancer UK in memory of her uncle who died from the condition.
Natalie, aged 27, studied law at Hallam University and went on to become a Citizens’ Advice Bureau volunteer.
And it was while studying for her degree that Natalie fell in love with running.
She said: “I was a total fatty through my teens and lost weight during my second and third years of uni by pounding the streets of Sheffield.
“That’s where I got my love of running. I’ve been raising money for Bowel Cancer UK since 2008 and last year started a year of fundraising, getting friends and family to come to events with me.”
Natalie, who lives in Ecclesall and works at Caroline Moore Law in Nether Edge.added: “I’ve been running most days through the city and out past Forge Dam into the Peaks.”
