On Sunday the 18th May 2014, Ian Chesworth, Laura Riley (nee Chesworth) and Graeme Chesworth all ran and completed the Bupa Great Manchester 10k Run with around 40,000 other runners in glorious sunshine.
They ran in memory of their late father, Brian Chesworth who was set free after his 15 month battle with MND (motor neurone disease) on the 17th May 2012.
The MNDA was the chosen charity to run for and so far team Chesworth has raised over £1700.00 for the charity who support sufferers and their families through this fatal and incurable muscle wasting disease.
Laura, who completed the run on crutches due to a knee injury, crossed the finish line in 2h 15m, Graeme’s time was 55m 12s and Ian’s was 54m 04s. They would like to thank everybody who has supported them with donations and the wonderful crowd that cheered all the competitors on.
Ian says, “It was great to run with so many people each with their own inspiring stories and and great causes to raise money and awareness for.
