Great Manchester Run for Round Table Children\'s Wish

Press Release Body: THE father of a little girl who has battled leukaemia is
appealing for runners to take part in the Great Manchester Run.

Four year old Harriet Hatton from Lancashire is currently in remission after two
years fighting cancer. She's looking forward to a trip to Disneyland Paris, thanks
to Round Table Children's Wish.

Her father Gareth is supporting the charity in the 10km run this May, alongside 10
friends, and RTCW has places available for other runners interested in supporting

Gareth, 36, said: "Harriet had such excellent treatment that I ran last year to
raise money for Pendlebury, the local children's hospital.

"Now her childhood dream of visiting Disneyland Paris is being granted and I'd like
to do something to help grant wishes for other children suffering from
life-threatening illnesses.

"I urge other runners to support children like Harriett by running for Round Table
Children's Wish."

RTCW, which grants wishes for children with life-threatening illnesses throughout
the UK, has 11 places available in the Great Manchester Run on Sunday May 20.
Applications for entry must be made directly to the RTCW office by April 1. To find
