We have amazingly reached our initial goal of £15,000 in just 3 months, due to the support and dedication of so many. However this is potentially just the tip of the iceberg in terms of medical costs should the US consultants feel they can assist George in his quest for answers, so please do continue to support Team George as we strive for answers to his condition.Imagine a world where taking a bath results in horrific pain, where you have no taste as you are fed through a tube directly to your heart and where you spend most of your waking hours nervous that you will gain a terrifying infection that could result in yet another prolonged hospital stay.
Imagine for one second that you were 4 year old George Johnson, where this is a daily reality.About George
George Bertie Johnson is 4 year old super star who has a very rare motility condition. This means that he can't eat or drink and is currently fed directly through his heart. Even though George suffers from constant pain every day, he is always smiling. Team George has been created so that YOU
can be a part of the team which is fighting to get George better. George has spent the majority of his life in hospital where specialists at GOSH have been working tirelessly to get him better. Despite this the GOSH team have made little progress and so George's next line of hope lies with a team of consultants in America. Which is why we need to raise more cash!

"On the 23rd
March 2014, Leanne and I will be running Liverpool Half Marathon for Team George.
'We decided at the end of last year that we wanted to complete a half marathon in 2014 but we didn’t know who to run it for. We wanted to choose a cause that inspired us.
Late last year, we came across Team George at the Charity Event in the Farmers Arms. Leanne and I hadn’t heard about this little boy before and was taken aback by the support and efforts that went into that evening.
We decided we wanted to know more about George and what he is going through and after reading about his life so far we knew that we wanted to run for Team George. Let’s be honest, a half marathon is a walk in the park compared to what that young lad is fighting. He is a credit to all his family and friends and we know for sure that he will inspire us complete the 13.1 mile course.
We want to raise as much as we possibly can for Team George to get him closer to his Trip to America and we hope that you can help us do that by sponsoring us to complete the 2014 Liverpool Half Marathon."
