Runners’ record for kids’ charity

Have your say

A CHARITY which helps sick children in Sheffield saw a record number of people take part in the Great Yorkshire Run race on its behalf.

A team of 103 finished the 10k race to raise cash for Sheffield Children’s Hospital Charity – more than three times the number who did so last year.

The group – dubbed Team Theo after the charity’s mascot – included Paul Eames, from Woodseats, who credits the hospital with saving his son Daniel’s life. Daniel was just two months old when he spent a week in intensive care fighting viruses which attack the bowels and lungs.

The four-year-old is now happy and healthy – and joined in by running the Mini Run event with his older brother Harry, six.

Mum Katherine, 46, was also there to cheer them on.
