Help support 93-year-old who completed half marathon for cancer research

93-year-old avid walker Heather Lee completed a half-marathon to raise money for cancer research over the weekend.

The world-record breaking grandmother was meant to compete in the 21km Sydney Half Marathon on the weekend, but it was called off due to COVID-19.

This hasn’t stopped Heather going the distance and raising money for the Cancer Council, telling Deborah Knight she did the whole walk in one day when she had planned to do it over Saturday and Sunday.

“I lost my husband to cancer and I’ve lost friends to cancer and I have friends with cancer, so I understand how devastating it can be.

“Because I’ve been fortunate enough to be spared and because I can, I like to do whatever I can to raise awareness and help raise money for… important cancer research.”
