A teenager who was left seriously injured in the Manchester Arena bombing is to take part in the Simplyhealth Junior and Mini Great Manchester Run, almost a year to the day of the attack.

Freya Lewis, from Holmes Chapel, will also be given an honorary starter role at the event on Sunday 20 May. She’ll be joined by her Dad Nick who is taking part in the Simplyhealth Great Manchester Run 10k.

Freya and Nick are running in support of Royal Manchester Children’sHospital Charity, who they have raised over £24,000 for since the attack.

The Simplyhealth Great Manchester Run will take place just two days before the anniversary of the attack, where 15-year-old Freya suffered multiple fractures, lacerations and burns after being hit by shrapnel at the Ariana Grande concert.

Her friend and classmate Nell Jones was tragically killed in the blast.
