Are you up for body combat challenge in Havant?

Southern Health wants people to help with mental health plans

Have your say

ARE you fit enough to take part in a body combat marathon?

Sarah Southern is organising a three-hour challenge to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

The 38-year-old, from Farlington, staged the first event in 2012 in memory of her stepfather Ian Jacks who was diagnosed with terminal cancer.

He has since died and the body combat marathons have contributed thousands of pounds to fighting cancer.

It is now in its fifth year and Sarah has decided it will be the final event.

Sarah, a mum of one, said: ‘We’ve raised over £22,000 and want to finish with a bang by raising £30,000 in total’.

She chose Cancer Research because of the support and treatment her family received while her step-father was battling the disease.

Anyone can take part in the body combat marathon which is happening on March 26 at Havant Leisure Centre.
