Colin has run the Great Manchester 10k Run for 9 years and raised approximately £5000 for different charities an amazing achievement.I've always loved sports and have played football regularly all my life. In 2012 I'll run the Great Manchester Run for the 10th consecutive time and hope to add to the money I have raised for Charity each time. This year I tested myself further running my first half marathon and I hope to run a marathon one day. I hope this and future runs inspires others to challenge themselves to run events they didn't think they could do raising money for charities along the way...and not always the more well known charities that receive larger support and coverage. I also hope in the coming years to inspire my 3 year old son (and any future additions to the family :-) ) to take part in sport enjoy it and maybe in turn inspire others to take part too.
