Katherine Jenkins - Katherine Jenkins Tackles Half Marathon

Classical singer Katherine Jenkins has raised $7,200 (£4,500) for charity after tackling a half marathon on Sunday (07Oct12).

The Welsh star donned her jogging shoes to compete in London's Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon, and even took to Twitter.com during the race to post a photo of herself at the halfway mark.

Jenkins, who had just three weeks of training, finished the 13-mile (21-kilometre) trek in a little over two hours, and is handing the donations her team pulled in to the Grief Encounter Project, which helps youngsters cope with the loss of a parent.

She tweeted, "We made it! In 2 hours 4 (minutes)! Thanks to all who came out to cheer us on! Again, thanks for your support! £4,500 raised so far!"

Jenkins then shared a snap of herself enjoying a traditional British Sunday roast in the pub with her teammates, adding, "I think we deserve this, don't you?"
