After being diagnosed with double pneumonia & sepsis and spending three weeks in an induced coma in January 2020, Sam Higginbottom ran a marathon in December to raise funds for CHFT. He said beforehand: “I feel the best way to give back and make the biggest impact to the people who kept me alive is to raise as much money as possible for the trust, and now I’m back on my feet I’m going to run a marathon”.
Sam, pictured centre with his brother and his Dad, finished the marathon at HRI on Sunday 20th December and has already raised more than £4,000.
He said: “I want to say a massive 'Thank You' to everyone at both Huddersfield Royal Infirmary & Calderdale Royal for everything. You guys are amazing and I definitely owe you one!”
