The Great North Run 2008

On a suprisingly warm and dry Sunday in early October, Andrea Lucchetti took part in the Great North Run, to raise money for one of his patients. Glenice Briant was left paralysed from the neck down following a sudden growth into her spinal chord. This year Andrea is aiming to raise over £3000.00 to allow her to purchase a specialsed electric bicyle.  Thanks mainly to the generosity of his patients, he was able to raise over £1700.00. He found the run an extremely humbling experience, considering that most of the 52000 runners were raising money for charity.

Chiropractic treatment followed by soft tissue therapy at the clinic helped him recover from a thigh injury and complete the course in 1 hr 56 minutes.
