The family have Katie Rough have spoken about how training for the Great North Run has helped them to get through the months since the seven-year-old's death.
Sister Bethany and auntie Sarah were part of a team of seven friends and relatives who ran the half marathon in memory of Katie, who was killed in January.
So far the family have raised £5000, with the aim of funding two children in Uganda through school for the next ten years. They need an extra £1000 to meet their target.
Last week the teenage girl who admitted the manslaughter of Katie was sent to a secure hospital ahead of a final decision on her sentence, which is expected in November.
Katie's auntie Sarah told how the family took up running to distract them from the ongoing court case.
Bethany and Sarah say this will definitely not be the last of their fundraising efforts, with Sarah already thinking of doing the Yorkshire marathon in October.
