Frankie Logan will be out and about with her mum, Robyn Boswell, and they hope to complete the distance in three months, starting in April.

They have set a target of £300 for the Frankie’s One in a Million challenge.

Frankie said: “I love exploring the outdoors and walking, running and cycling all over the South Downs, especially in the rain. I love jumping, and sitting, in the muddiest puddles - anything to get as messy as possible.

“Mummy and I have set ourselves a challenge to walk one million steps in three months. It means all the walking I love will hopefully raise money to help people.”

Robyn, who works in the NHS with people facing mental health challenges, said her daughter is her inspiration, because she is adventurous, kind and caring, and like making people, smiles even on the hard days.

Robyn and her partner Paul Logan have had close family friends face their own dark times, especially during the pandemic, and the family wants to show people they are not alone.
