Helen takes on 12 half marathons to help great niece

A Skipton woman has set herself a target of running a half marathon every month of 2015 – to help fund lifesaving treatment for her great niece. Helen Large is just one of the close knit family rallying round to help 18 month old Isla-Grace Large, who has a very rare form of cancer. Although the Proton Beam therapy and the cost of travel to United States will be covered by the NHS, the living costs of Isla-Grace and her parents, Beth and Rhys, will have to be met by the family.
