THIS Sunday, over 2,500 people will be running, walking or crawling around town in the inaugural Wigan 10k.
And nearly 100 of those will be running for Joseph’s Goal, to raise funds to find a cure for the rare genetic disorder, NKH.
Latics skipper Emmerson Boyce gave the local charity worldwide exposure when he carried little Joseph Kendrick on to the field for the FA Cup final.
And Lucy Cachia-Boyce will be among those running for Joseph’s Goal this weekend, with Boycey pledging to match every penny raised by his wife.
Joseph himself will also be out there on the course, being pushed along the route in his wheelchair by proud mum, Emma, with dad Paul also in the field.
Many of you have signed up to do the run for Joseph’s Goal, while others have already sponsored someone to run.
