Stephen Sutton's mother to honour London Marathon promise
The mother of the cancer fundraiser Stephen Sutton is running the London Marathon to honour a promise she made to her son before he died.
Stephen, 19, from Burntwood, Staffordshire, died last May after launching an appeal that raised more than £5m for the Teenage Cancer Trust.
Jane Sutton, who said it was her "first ever" marathon, aims to raise £10,000 for the trust during the event on 26 April.
She said: "The support of everybody has been absolutely incredible. When I have been going out on my training runs, it's been lovely seeing people."
