FOOTBALL legend Norman Hunter will launch a two-pronged charity fun run next month.

The former Leeds United and England star is supporting the event to raise awareness and cash for a charity, the Myasthenia Gravis Association.

There will be two runs, one of six kilometres (about four miles) and one of 10 (six miles).

Norman's daughter, Claire, suffers from myasthenia gravis, a muscle weakness disease which is potentially fatal and has no cure.

The charity has 67 support groups nationwide, including one for the Huddersfield area.

The idea for the run came from Martin Wolstencroft, of Leeds, whose five-year-old son, Josef, suffers from congenital myasthenia gravis.

Martin said: "It's intended to be a fun day out for all the family.

"So whether you want to be first back, have a natter and ramble with friends, or have a goal to focus on, then there's something to suit all abilities."

A barbecue is planned for the participants and their families.

The runs take place at Alwoodley, north Leeds, on Sunday, May 21, starting at 10.30am.
