Slimming World’s Lynne runs the New York Marathon
On 4th November, target member and Consultant Lynne McGrail will be lacing up her trainers for a super exciting run through the Big Apple! Lynne is running the New York Marathon, representing Slimming World – raising money for our charities, SMILES and the Irish Cancer Society.
Lynne joined her local Slimming World group in Rathfarnham, Ireland in 2014, after a disastrous summer holiday and a stern doctor’s warning about her weight. Within two years she’d lost an incredible 6st 7½Ibs – reaching her target weight of 8st 12½lbs – and fallen in love with running as a form of brilliant weight loss-boosting Body Magic.
Lynne now runs her own Slimming World groups in Dundrum, supporting other members along their weight loss journeys – while her own Slimming World journey takes her to New York! Through SMILES – our amazing charity which has raised over £9 million for good causes since its launch in 1997 – Lynne will be fundraising for the Irish Cancer Society, a charity that’s close to her heart.
‘It feels incredible to be able to do something to raise vital funds and awareness of a disease that affects so many people, myself included,’ says Lynne. ‘I’m super excited to be taking a bite of the Big Apple!’
