A CLITHEROE man put his best foot forward and raised £450 to keep the memory alive of a friend’s son.

Father-of-two Chris Cox laced up his running shoes and completed a half marathon for the charity Every Action Has Consequences to honour the memory of his friend’s son, Adam Rogers, who was tragically killed aged just 24 while trying to prevent a fight.

Chris, who works as a director of higher education at St Mary’s College, Blackburn, completed the Freckleton half-marathon – the oldest event of its kind in the UK and raised £450.

He said: “The weather was bright and sunny and there were around 850 people that took part in the race.

“It was a great atmosphere, however, I found the race quite difficult and finished in two hours and 10 minutes.”

He added: “I am grateful to all the donations received so far and I’ve also been thanked by Adam’s parents, Pat and Dave, for not only raising awareness of the charity, but raising money for it too.”
