At the end of January, the family of 8-year-old Reggie Lesley were given the devastating news that he had been diagnosed with lymphoblastic leukaemia and life as they knew it changed.

On behalf of Reggie, originally from Essex and now living back there, and Great Ormond Street Hospital in London, the family will be holding a charity event on Saturday, June 4, called #ReggiesDinoRun.

Everyone is invited to participate in a 9.5k (6 miles) run or walk along the route of Elviria Campo, starting from 10am (participants should arrive at 9:45am). Entry fee is €20 and this includes a green charity t-shirt labelled #ReggiesDinoRun with funds going towards Reggie and this important cause.
