2009 - Adam Lane

Lives: Stockport

Story: Harley Lane almost died when he suffered from meningitis back in 2009 and lost all four limbs in his battle to stay alive.

Although he wasn’t expected to live, Harley has achieved many great things in his life, including carrying the bride’s wedding ring when his mum and dad, Samantha and Adam, tied the knot.

Harley is now 13 years old and most recently had scar release surgery in March this year.

He wears prosthetic legs full time when he is at school at Hazel Grove High School and uses an electric chair to whizz around the school corridors. At home, he prefers to just use his legs and has become adept at overcoming obstacles to get around.

Adam said: “I last ran the Great Manchester Run in 2012 for the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.

“The hospital saved my son’s life and still continues to give him amazing treatment and care. If it wasn’t for the amazing nurses and doctors, my son wouldn’t be here.

“Being part of Team 10 and the birthday celebrations will be a great way to mark the 10 years since our journey with the hospital began.”

Adam’s thoughts on Team 10: "When I was asked to join Team 10 I didn’t hesitate to say ‘yes’ to raise awareness and money for the hospital. It will also help me raise awareness of meningitis. Harley, Samantha and our family and friends will be there to support me on the day, pushing me through to the finish line."
