A HAWORTH man along with his Keighley father will be running in the Bradford 10K for Bradford Hospital's Charity.

Daniel Wadsworth, 31, who is deputy head of access at Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (BTHFT), will take part alongside his dad Stephen, 58, who is from Riddlesden.

The duo are both keen runners and admit there will be an element of competition between them, but their ultimate goal is to raise as much cash as possible.

Dan, who is based at St Luke’s Hospital, said: “We train together and go to the gym together every Tuesday to keep fit. I'd be lying if I said there wasn’t any competition between us! We both hope to finish in under 55 minutes.

“Working for the trust, I see first-hand just what a huge difference the Bradford Hospitals’ Charity makes.

"I've previously raised money for the charity, which enabled them to buy toys for the children’s ward. It’s wonderful to see your efforts have such a positive impact on the experience of children when they come into hospital.”

Hayley Collis, head of fundraising for Bradford Hospitals’ Charity, said: “We're incredibly grateful to Dan and Stephen for choosing our charity.

"Dan sees every single day how the money benefits patients directly and we're sure his efforts will provide an even bigger boost to helping us ensure patients have the best experience possible.”

The son and father pair will run in the Epilepsy Action Bradford 10K on Sunday April 29. The first £22 of the sum they raise will go to Epilepsy UK and the rest to Bradford Hospitals’ Charity. Visit justgiving.com/fundraising/dan-wadsworth1 to donate.
