Stamford Daniels U11’s are running the Stamford Santa Fun Run in aid of their team mate, George Connell, who has recently been diagnosed with a rare type of T Cell Lymphoma after a tumour was found in his chest. He started chemotherapy at Addenbrookes at the end of November.
After finding out what their friend was going through, talk amongst some of the boys turned to what they could do to help him, his parents Emily and Sean, and his brother Charlie at such an awful time.
After getting our heads together, the boys who are all aged under 11 have decided to run a 5k run dressed in Santa suits. The event is being held on the 8th December 11.30am at Burghley Park in the hope to raise some money for their friend and his family.
Whether it be for a family trip or just to take the pressure off them during this difficult time, the boys would really appreciate your support, so please donate - however small, any amount will make a difference
Please also feel free to come along on the day and give the boys some encouragement from the side lines.
