Surrey Docks councillor Lisa Rajan will run the London Marathon this weekend dressed as Wonder Woman as she seeks to raise money for Reverse Rett charity.
The group funds research into Rett Syndrome, a rare brain disease that can cause seizures, an inability to walk, growth failure and gastrointestinal problems.
The Lib-Dem councillor said: “For the second year running, I am dusting off my favourite Wonder Woman outfit and embarrassing myself in front of residents in Surrey Docks and Rotherhithe. I’m not looking to break any speed records but I do hope at least to make it to the finish line ahead of any rhinos or bananas!
“Reverse Rett is a brillant charity. They fund research into the devastating rare condition Rett Syndrome, which causes severe mental and physical disability in young girls around their first birthday”
Lisa has already raised £1250, but is urging donations: www.justgiving.com/lisarajan4/
