Bath five-year-old who lost all her limbs to meningitis to take part in half marathon
A five-year-old from Bath who lost all of her limbs to meningitis will be taking part in this year's Bath half marathon with an army of supporters to raise money for a local charity.
Harmonie-Rose Allen contracted meningitis B when she was 10 months old and had to have both legs and arms amputated.
Despite doctors advice to turn off her life support machine, in September 2018 she started primary school with a new pair of prosthetic legs.
In March the five-year-old will take part in the Bath half marathon along with her auntie and several supporters.
Two of Harmonie-Rose's teachers from Combe Down Primary School will also be running the 13.1 miles for the charity Time is Precious.
It helps offer a more comfortable and relaxed atmosphere for children and families in hospital or at home.
On her fundraising page, Harmonie-Rose's auntie describes her niece as a "normal little girl, with normal dreams and aspirations".
The team will push her in a wheelchair along the route, in the hope that she will be able to run the last few metres.
