A BROMSGROVE optician will be running to raise funds for Vision Aid Overseas, one of the charities chosen by Specsavers where she works.
Katie Burrows will be running her first half-marathon for the cause which is dedicated to giving more people in developing countries access to eyecare.
Bromsgrove Specsavers director Mark Gibson said everyone there was incredibly proud of Katie and her commitment to supporting the charity.
“Ten per cent of the world’s population are disadvantaged by poor vision and a lack of spectacles.
“We wish her all the best for the day and hope that people dig deep to help support this cause.”
