Five Year Olds To Raise Funds For Brave Little Boy
Young runners will race to support Royal Marsden hospital
A charity run to raise money for the Royal Marsden hospital has attracted support from some very young locals.
Five-year old Sam Huxford and friends from Southfield Primary School are amongst those raising funds for the hospital. Sam and his family are participating to support their three-year old relative, Harry Sherwood, who is currently undergoing treatment for leukemia.
Children aged five and even younger are amongst those taking part in the Bushy Park Juniors 2km Run on 4th May. Team Harry has already raised over £3,000 towards research into cancer.
Harry's aunt, Hannah Huxford, who lives in Chiswick said; "We have decided to do some fund raising, with the help of friends and family, over the course of his treatment and have set ourselves the goal of raising £10k for The Royal Marsden who are treating Harry."
Along with her son Sam, Harry's older sister Freya, who attends Collis Primary School in Teddington (both aged 5) will take part in the Race. A number of other young children from Southfield Primary and their families have also pledged their support by running.
The family have appealed for anyone interested in fundraising for the cause to get in touch. Anyone who wants to donate can do so at: www.justgiving.com/Teamharry2014
