Great North Run: raising money and awareness

5:35PM, WED 12 SEP 2012
GREAT NORTH RUN 2012

Three years ago Rebecca Griffin was a champion gymnast and trampoline instructor. Now just getting through each day is a struggle.

She suffers from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, which is also known as M.E. It is a condition with no known cause or cure which leaves those who suffer it in severe pain.

Despite this, Rebecca has managed to put in the training for this year's Great North Run. Together with her mother, Jannette, and a team of volunteers from the Association of Young People with ME, they will walk most of the route and raise money and awareness for the charity along the way.

Craig Heap, meanwhile has a different reason for taking part. The former Olympic and Commonwealth gymnast, who now trains youngsters in Newcastle, was inspired to run after the death of a young sports ambassador he used to mentor.

Alex Williams died in the summer. And now Craig is raising money for the Believe and Achieve appeal through the Meningitis Trust in his memory.
