Devoted cousin to run marathon for Bluebell Wood

Jade Fallowfield - a runner from Wath-upon-Dearne in South Yorkshire - is taking part in the Yorkshire Marathon today in aid of Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice, to thank them for caring for her 10 year-old cousin Elijah.

Elijah was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour in June 2011 and sadly lost his battle in May 2012 spending his final days being cared for at Bluebell Wood.

  • The Yorkshire Marathon takes place today and this much-anticipated run through the heart of York will be the biggest marathon in the whole of the white rose county.
