Liverpool FC Academy coach Steven Gerrard joined 10-year-old George Mathias for a run around the Kirkby complex last week to raise funds for one of the club’s official charity’s partners, Alder Hey Children’s Hospital.
George’s brother James was born prematurely in 2010, and as a result was left in a coma suffering serious complications. The dedicated staff at Alder Hey looked after James from day one and managed to save his life.
In order to thank the children’s hospital, George has been running a mile for every month that James has survived alongside a host of celebrities and sportspeople including ex-Reds legends Gerrard and Jamie Carragher.
