Gran on the Run ... For the Money! After her granddaughter was diagnosed with a rare blood disorder, Wendy Ellwood did what any other retired grandmother with no previous running experience would do ...sign up for The Great North Run a half marathon to help raise money for the Diamond Blackfan Anaemia charity! This book follows Wendy's journey as she experiences the highs and lows of training in the lanes around a pretty Lakeland village; and people's warmth and generosity in supporting her along the way. Did she make it? How much was raised? ... you'll have to read the book!


AFTER her young granddaughter Heidi was diagnosed with a rare blood disorder, Wendy Ellwood was determined to do something positive to help her and other children suffering from the same illness. And the opportunity came when the charity set up to support sufferers of Diamond Blackfan Anaemia - DBA UK - ask for volunteers to take part in Britain's premier fundraising half marathon. Wendy, from Staveley, who confesses she had "never run further than a bus stop before," decided to rise to the challenge. Gran on the Run tells the story of how she underwent nine months of training - including warm weather runs in Malta - before joining 59,000 other runners to make her remarkable run as part of what is claimed to be the world's greatest half marathon. This took place over in Newcastle in September and Wendy's effort in completing the 13.1-mile course helped to raise thousands of pounds for DBA UK.
