Hannah contacted IA in November 2016 as she was planning to run the Stafford Half Marathon in March 2017, in aid of IA.

Armed with an IA t-shirt, Hannah has been in training ever since. In her own words, even as a keen runner, she has not run this distance before and it is a massive accomplishment for her.
