104-year-old to walk marathon for charity

A 104-year-old woman who is looking to give veteran fundraiser Captain Sir Tom Moore a run for his money by walking a marathon for charity is “very competitive,” her granddaughter has said. Ruth Saunders, from Newbury, Reading, originally set out to walk 104 laps of her block to match her age, a distance of about 21 miles, but decided to extend her goal to a full marathon (26.2 miles) after encouragement from her family.
