EAST YORKS: A team of nine women are to run the Bridlington Half-Marathon on Sunday in memory of their friend Tina Kent.
Tina, 46, lost her battle with breast cancer in April – 15 days after her daughter's tenth birthday. She also left behind her husband and 14-year-old son.
The women are raising money for Her Breast Friends.
Jo Fisher, Tina's sister-in-law, said: "At Tina's funeral, her friend Donna said she was going to do a half-marathon and, under the influence of alcohol, I said I would.

"It snowballed from there.
"Waking up the next day I just thought 'I can't even run for a bus, why am I doing a half-marathon'."
The team started to train, making sure they would run at least once together each week.
And in April they ran the Race for Life in memory of Tina.
Jo said: "We have now run 14.6 miles, to prove to ourselves we can do it.
"I am really, really excited now. I think we are all so ready for it.
"I think Tina would be really proud of us.
"She would laugh at some of the sights we have come back from our training in, but will be really proud we have done it for her."
Team Tina will run on Sunday.

HULL: A café owner has been prosecuted for dumping his waste in the street.
Daleer Fathahi, owner of Kurdistan Café in Spring Bank, failed to comply with the two legal notices served by Hull City Council.
Staff from the business deposited large amounts of demolition and food waste in the street leaving the area looking untidy, causing a nuisance to nearby residents and other businesses.
Hull City Council's environmental neighbourhood nuisance team investigated after complaints.
Mr Fathahi, of west Hull, pleaded guilty to three offences.
He was fined £70, ordered to pay £350 prosecution costs and a £15 victims' surcharge.
HULL: The deadline for filing paper tax returns is Wednesday, October 31.
Paper tax returns received on or after Thursday, November 1, will mean a £100 penalty – even if there is no tax to pay or the tax due is paid on time.
Those not able to submit their paper return by the end of the month can avoid a late-filing penalty by sending their return online by Thursday, January 31.
For general help and advice on completing a return, visit www.hmrc.gov.uk/sa or call the self-assessment helpline on 08459 000444.
