A Knaresborough dad will run the New York Marathon to raise funds for charity after facing the heartbreak of losing his partner to cancer.

Ex-RAF Sergeant Lawrence Harris, known to friends as Loz, will pound the pavements in the world’s biggest marathon this November to raise money for Saint Michael’s Hospice in Harrogate, where his fiancée Julie Wells died in 2009.
