Whether you’re a seasoned runner or just starting out, the Great North Run is a fantastic challenge to set yourself knowing that every single step you take will make a difference for children with half a working heart.

Starting in Newcastle, you’ll run through Gateshead (watch out for the Red Arrows flying overhead!), and then past thousands of supporters as you enter South Shields before having a beautiful view of the sea as you undertake your final charge to the finish line.

If you’ve already bought your own place directly through the Great North Run organisers, we’d still love to have you as part of our team! There is no sponsorship target for own place runners – just raise as much as you can. Let us know that you’ve signed up and we’ll send you a running vest and fundraising pack.

    👋 Meet Archie, he is 7 years old and was born with Tricuspid Atresia (TA) a rare congenital heart condition. Archie had his Fontan procedure in September at the University Hospital Southampton, Ocean Ward. The aim of the Fontan procedure is to give a child as much energy as having only half a pumping heart will allow. If surgery has gone to plan the children will gradually recover from the operation and go on to gain far more energy than they had before. He had a longer stay than anticipated, due to a number of complications, but was discharged in October.

    ❤️ “The staff, nurses, doctors, consultants and surgeon were utterly wonderful and we can’t thank them enough. However, it was a consultant anaesthetist, Dr Andy Curry, who stood out in Archie’s mind. His bedside manner, and the relationship of trust that he managed to build up with our very anxious little boy, was astounding to watch. So, on ‘Dress as your Hero Day’ at school, Archie wanted to dress as his hero…”I want to dress as Dr Andy because he helped save my life and he’s my friend”…gulp” – Archie’s mum Charlene.

    😻 We have been blown away by this story. A month after coming home from hospital and Archie is raising a smile, dressing up as his hero and on his way to school. This is one strong boy, as are all of the children in the LHM family.

    🙌 Give this post a share to show your support of Children’s day.
