Mrs Jane Lewis, 41, of Sherwood Grove, Bingham, aims to raise around £2,500 for the Rosie May Memorial Fund, founded in memory of Rosie May Storrie, of Normanton, who was murdered in 2003 aged ten.

The fund looks to provide children with the future that Rosie May was denied and a home has been built in Sri Lanka to provide 20 orphaned girls with a safe and caring environment in which to grow up.

Mrs Lewis, a family friend and trustee of the fund, said she decided to dye her hair bright pink after friends asked how they would spot her in the crowd.

“It was Rosie May’s favourite colour and I’ll be running in a pink top, with pink nails — pink everything,” she said.

“I’m quite anxious but I won’t stop. I’ll think of Rosie May and the smiles on the Sri Lankan girls’ faces.

“With everything Rosie May’s family have been through, running a marathon is nothing.”

Mrs Lewis, a personal fitness trainer, said the money would provide the girls with food, clothes and education.
