GEORGE RUNS AWAY WITH IT 2017 WAS AN AMAZING YEAR FOR 11 YEAR OLD AMBASSADOR GEORGE MATHIAS Inspired by his little brother James, whose life Alder Hey saved as a baby, George has raised over £50,000 for the hospital by running a mile for every month that he has had James in his life. His amazing efforts were recently recognised on a national stage when he won the Good Morning Britain Young Fundraiser of the Year at the 2017 Pride of Britain awards. George, from St Helens, received his award from X Factor’s Louis, Nicole, Sharon, and Dermot alongside Good Morning Britain’s Ben and Susanna at a star studded awards night in London. He was then invited to Downing Street to meet the Prime Minister. George explained his motivation to fundraise saying, “Because Alder Hey saved James’ life, I just wanted to raise as much money as I could. I was coming up with different ideas and I came up with the idea of running one mile for every month I’ve had James… from the day he pulled through he’s been a pain in the neck, but he’s still my best friend!” On 1st January 2017, George ran his first mile. To date he has run an incredible 100 miles, drafting in a host of celebrities including Jason Manford, Beth Tweddle, John Bishop, Steven Gerrard and Leighton Baines to join him along the way. 6 George runs away with it

“ George is my hero JAMES MATHIAS, “ GEORGE’S BROTHER The £50,000 raised by George has been used to purchase specially heated cots for Alder Hey which will help babies to regulate their temperature. Dad, Richard said: “I don’t think proud really covers how I feel about George.” On Sunday 8th October George, along with a group of his friends, ran one of the miles at the inaugural Alder Hey 10K & Family Fun Run at Croxteth Park - he even persuaded Mum Sue and Dad Richard to run the full 10K on the day! And as for James who is now 7, he simply states: “George is my hero.” You can find out more about George and his runs at George runs away with it 7
