Peter Jackson, Sam’s father, entered his first 10Km race to raise money for the group. He completed the BUPA Great Manchester Run in an official time of 1 hour and 38 seconds.
At the time of writing, Peter’s Just Giving page shows over £500 raised so far which is a fantastic effort, although it is not too late for you to show your support and appreciation by adding to his total. Rumour has it that Peter is already setting his sites on a half-marathon next, so watch this space.
The group would like to offer a huge congratulations to Peter on his achievement. Why not watch the BBC TV highlights of the event on the iPlayer and if it inspires you to take part in a sponsored event or activity in support of the group then we’d love to hear from you.
