A doctor and four nurses are limbering up to raise funds for two Islandwide charities in the Bupa Great South Run.
Dr Jac Tracey, from the YMCA Children's Bereavement Service, along with four nurses from the Isle of Wight Children's Community Nursing Team, Emma Woodfield, Becky Hepworth, Angela O'Hanlon and Amy Daly are taking part in this year's Bupa Great South Run.
The ten-mile long challenge takes place on 28 October.
The team are all of varying levels of fitness but the majority are starting from scratch.
The nurses are raising money for Layla's Trust which aims to provide support for bereaved families who have lost children, and to families who have disabled or terminally ill children.
Dr Jac Tracey is running for YMCA Children's Bereavement Service which offers counselling and support to children and young people on the Isle of Wight who have experienced the death of someone close to them.
