Around 200 people pulled out their trainers to run and raise money for Skye Sutcliffe, a Leeds tot with incurable cancer.

The “Running for Skye” event was organised by Skye’s grandmother Amelia Scott and raised over £2,000 for cancer charities Candlelighters and Delete Blood Cancer UK.

Skye was diagnosed with two rare types of leukaemia when she was four months old.

After receiving a bone marrow transplant from her four year old brother, Skye’s family were told at Christmas that both cancers had returned and Skye is now incurable.

Amelia, said: “We nearly cancelled the run when Skye relapsed.

“I’m glad we didn’t, the fun run was absolutely amazing and we are definitely doing it again next year.”
