CHATTERIS woman Amanda Boldy has taken on her greatest challenge yet by becoming a heart runner in the Great North Run and also organising a Zumbathon for next month in aid of the British Heart Foundation. (BHF).

Twenty-four-year-old Amanda will be donning her official BHF Heart Runners vest and running the challenging 13.1 mile course in September along with organising a Zumbathon to take place at the Hinchingbrook School Leisure Centre July 3.

This will involve 3 hours of exhilarating Zumba taught by three different teachers. Tickets cost £10 for three hours or £5 for one hour and there will also be a raffle on the day with pizes from Zumbawear UK, Sweatty Betty, Waitrose, Peacocks, Phoenix Hair Salon and many more,

Amanda said: “I decided to organise the Zumbathon and also become a heart runner because last year a member of my running club (Bushfield Joggers) sadly passed away from a heart attack at the Great Eastern Run, this was completely unexpected and was a big shock and a huge loss to both the club and his family. As a club we now support the British Heart Foundation as our main charity and are all doing everything we can to raise money for this great cause”
