12 Joanne’s marathon

12 Joanne’s marathon efforts A loving daughter has taken on numerous fitness challenges in aid of The Christie Foundation. Joanne Platt, 36, from Pemberton, decided to take on 16 fitness challenges to raise money for the Christie after the help they gave her dad. Joanne said: “My dad was diagnosed with terminal cancer over six years ago and he was told he wouldn’t reach 60, and last year he had his 61st birthday. “He had a heart attack in October last year, but he is well and he has itchy feet to get back to work. People are amazed at how he is. “That keeps me going really because he is keeping active. The chemo is more a stabiliser, to keep him as he is. “This wasn’t just down to my dad’s determination and positive mind but from the support and work the Christie do on a daily basis!” BRING BACK THE TRADITIONAL MILKMAN AND HAVE YOUR MILK DELIVERED TO YOUR DOOR IN GLASS BOTTLES EASY AS 1, 2, 3... • MAKE THE DECISION TO CHANGE • RING: 01942 223273 or P A S S THE WORLD NEEDS YOU TO O N I C P L A S T EMAIL: (existing customers) (new customers) • SIT BACK AND GIVE YOURSELF A PAT ON THE BACK FOR HELPING TO SAVE OUR PLANET TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

13 Joanne has already taken on a year’s worth of challenges, but her final showdown? The London Marathon in April. She said: “I felt strained towards the end of last year. I said to my husband ‘What should I do next? And he said I think you need a break.’ “My last event was in November, and my next one is the St Helens 10K on Sunday, March 4. “Dad is a big supporter so he is always on the side lines and where possible gets involved. “But with the fact he had a heart attack, we tell him to take it easy.
