Five-year-old who lost limbs to meningitis finishes marathon for charity

Five-year-old Harmonie-Rose Allen has inspired people all over the UK by completing a 13.1 mile half-marathon - all on her prosthetic limbs.

As a baby, Harmonie-Rose contracted meningococcal septicaemia in 2014 and was given a 10 per cent chance of survival. She had to have both legs and arms amputated. Despite doctor's advice to turn off her life support machine, Harmonie-Rose survived the odds.

We've always tried to encourage her to never be afraid of her abilities. There's nothing really that she shouldn't be able to do," Harmonie's aunt Hannah told Good Morning Britain.

Harmonie-Rose had been training in the lead-up, and she and her team of seven completed the course in just over three hours. They ran the half-marathon in support of Time is Precious, a charity which helps offer a more comfortable and relaxed atmosphere for children and families in hospitals or at home.
