Olivia Strong was on a run around the iconic Arthur's Seat in Edinburgh during exercise fix for the day when a selfless fundraising notion came to mind. 

The 27-year-old saw others out on a run, walk or cycle and it inspired her to harness that activity for the positive work of the NHS.

She planned to encourage others to run, walk or cycle 5km (3.1 miles), donate £5 to charity then nominate five others to do the same.

So far, the initiative has raised more than £2m for to support the NHS services.

She named the campaign Run For Heroes and set it up that afternoon. All the money it raises goes to NHS Charities Together.
