On her final run on New Year’s Eve at Frome Rugby Club, it was announced that her final total was £18,160, however, a sprint finish of donations led her final donation to £20,000.
Rachel said, “The cheque presentation was absolutely incredible. Ending this phenomenal challenge on an absolute high, what an honour to present the huge cheque to the WHY team in the company of Kym Whisstock, Jill Miller’s daughter.
“As the Frome Times rightly said I am truly overwhelmed and humbled by your continued support, your continued generosity and your continued belief in what I do and what I ask others to do.
“Work hard, be kind and amazing things will happen.
“For Kym’s mum and my mum, in their memory forever.”
