Five local athletes are now well into their training for the Great North Run which takes place on Sunday 10th September.
They're hoping to raise thousands of pounds for the well known Halifax based charity HOPE Community Village, which provides homes for orphaned and destitute children in South India.
Cheryle Berry, Dawn Rogers, Richard Green (running freelance but deputising in the photo for our runner Heather Rostron), Sue Testo and Claire Hildred.
To support the runners and securely donate to Hope, where every penny raised goes to provide homes for the children in India, please go now to www. justgiving.com and enter Hope Community Village.
