I’ve done the Mini Great North Run for St Oswald’s Hospice for five years now – since I was three! It’s the best day ever and I love wearing my t-shirt, especially as my mum always get my name put on the back in sparkly letters! St Oswald’s is the best team to run for because their staff are there at the Quayside Seaside to cheer us all on and make us feel special. They also give us sweets at the end! I always ask my friends and family to sponsor me because the money helps the patients at the hospice.
