We caught up with the indefatigable Dani McLaren.

Thanks to a family connection with the Avoca / Maryborough area, she is the first person to be sponsored via the Terry Floyd Foundation - a charity for children set up to help tackle issues including bullying, abuse and rural isolation.

Terry was 12 when he was last seen in the main street of Avoca in 1975 and what exactly happened to him remains a mystery.

His younger brother Daryl has sey up the foundation to honor his memory.

Dani is a teacher in the Shepparton area and plans to complete a marathon a day between July 1 and 7.

This is the 5th year she is doing the 'Triple-7' - and Dani is aiming to make it seven years in a row...
