DRESSED as a popular children’s cartoon character Lorraine Stewart kept the crowd smiling at the Great South Run.
Lorraine, 48, of Portsmouth, was running to raise cash for a cancer charity after her daughter was diagnosed with the disease 15 years ago.
Lorraine, dressed as SpongeBob SquarePants, spoke to The News after her run yesterday.
She said: ‘I’m running for Children with Cancer.
‘My daughter had cancer when she was little,’ she said.
‘She had a tumour on her spine back in 1999 – she’s fine now.
‘It’s the seventh time I’ve run it.’ The cash raised by Lorraine will got to charity and Southampton General Hospital.
