A FUN run inspired by a brave Cleveleys youngster will aim to break the £20,000 fund-raising barrier this year.
The Sotos 10k and fun run on Sunday, June 24 has brought in almost £19,000 since it began four years ago and this year should see the event, run between Fleetwood and Cleveleys, top £20,000.
The race is organised by the family of eight-year-old Emily-May Eaton, of Kendal Avenue, who suffers from Sotos Syndrome.
This genetic condition brings accelerated growth in early life but can also carry other health complications.
The youngster’s parents Simon and Sue Eaton are keen to do all they can to boost research to help other sufferers in future.
The fund-raiser takes place on Sunday June 26 from Fleetwood Sea Cadet Base to Rossall and back.
A more gentle paced run gets under way at 10.20am, while the more demanding 10k run starts at 11am.
Entry forms are available in Fleetwood from Lighthouse Stationers on North Albert Street or the Gazette Office on Lord Street.
People can also call 07973 241936 or 07866 637103 or visit www.weshamroadrunners.com to obtain an entry form.
