There are some people who are very special indeed and in this episode of RunPod, we hear from one of them. George Mathias wanted to give back after his younger brother was admitted to hospital as a little boy. He has now raised a very impressive £800,000 for the Alder Hey Children’s Hospital to show his gratitude and he’s managed it through running. The most remarkable part is that George is only 13 years old. He tells us how a surprise from Simon Cowell kicked off the craziest year of his life and how running is now a Matthias family activity! George has not only raised an unbelievable amount of money, he’s also won more awards than he can count and after listening to this episode, you’ll be so motivated, you’ll want to get out there and run a mile...or maybe a lot more. Never one to sit still, George is hoping that other children and young people will get involved in a challenge he’s currently doing with the Prince’s Trust. Are you up for it? You’ll get all the details right here. Happy running!
