project in Norwich for homeless young men, suffered an unexpected heart attack last September and on May 11 ran the 5km with the Coltishall Jaguars
running club in a personal best of 29 mins and 53 secs
"The run went really well," said Chris. Despite the hot sun I achieved a personal best. I want to thank everyone for their support. It is amazing from where I was last September. To God be the Glory!"
Chris ran to raise cash for a charity which is supported by his church, Grace Christian Fellowship
