The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge
12:00am 15th June 2011
Taking on the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge.
That's what the dad of little Jamie Inglis is doing next month, to raise awareness of his son's rare form of cancer.
We told you about Jamie last year, when you helped raise half a million pounds to get him treatment in America.
He's now on the mend, but others haven't been as fortunate.
John's told Minster FM:
“As a member of the Armed Forces and parent of a child suffering with cancer I cannot stress how important your support is.
"Following a challenging couple of years fighting our own personal battle against neuroblastoma with our son Jamie, he is finally doing well and is in remission.
"Whilst we are getting our lives back on track we have been able to reflect on the amazing generosity of the public, Army and help from the registered charity Neuroblastoma Alliance which funded Jamie’s life saving treatment.
"The objective of the 3 Peaks Challenge is to raise funds for children that need specialist treatment abroad.”
