Harry, 6, raises cash for charity at Santa run
12:00pm Saturday 21st December 2013 in News
A PINT-SIZED fundraiser ran 6km dressed as Santa for a disability charity.
Holland Haven Primary pupil Harry Cowlin, aged just seven, took part in the Santa Run at Battersea Park with dad Chris.
Keen runner Harry completed the two-mile Frinton Fun Run in 2011.
“I loved watching my dad complete the London Marathon last year and have wanted to do a run with him ever since," he said.
“I really enjoyed the day and dressing up as Santa. I can’t wait to do another one.”
Chris and Harry raised money for the Disability Snowsport UK charity, which helps the disabled take part in snowsports.
Chris is running the London Marathon again next April for St John Ambulance.
“Harry was amazing on the day," he said. "He gave it his all and we completed the 6km in 43 minutes.
“I am so proud of him. He was determined to finish it to pick up his medal, and didn’t take any breaks.”
