Kyla's quest goes on in Jodie's memory

A fundraising stalwart has completed another gruelling test for a charity significant to her family.

Kyla Hanson managed to make over £500 sponsorship after completing a marathon-length rowathon.

After months of training, the super fit 24-year-old climbed into her rowing machine at her Market Weighton home to complete the 26 mile slog in 2 hours, 53 minutes and 39 seconds.

She said: "It was really good, I was really fit and ready to do it.

"I managed to do it all in one stint, it wasn't until two days after did I realise how tired I was from it.

"I didn't have a target, I just wanted to get as much as I could so I'm happy with the £500 I got."

Kyla has now handed the money over to CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young).

Her choice of charity came following the sudden death of her younger sister Jodie, who suffered from an undetected heart condition in 2004.

Jodie was just 20-years-old. Later that year Kyla began her fundraising by rowing 500 miles in over two months to raise £1000.

However, she is now setting her sights on a different form of money making through exercise.

She is now hoping to complete the 13-mile Great North Run in October for the charity.
