Quadriplegic Drew Graham thanks friends for running the Great North Run for him
Paralysed Newcastle athlete Drew Graham is gearing up to the Great North Run – as his pals are running it for him.
Since becoming a quadriplegic following a freak accident in America, determined Drew is on a mission to help others like himself.
And he is raising £50,000 to fund his Pop-Up Gym to help fellow sufferers across the region.
Drew, 31, said: “I’m so grateful to them for running for me. I will be supporting them while they are running as I will be going on my specialist exercise bike for two hours at the same time.
