Park runners to remember teenager at annual fundraiser in his memory
Football shirts will be donned for an annual charity park run in memory of a teenager who died of a rare form of cancer four years ago.
Sheringham Parkrun will be called David's Run on Saturday, March 9, in tribute to David Acott, who died on March 11, 2015, aged 17.
David and his mum Janet Acott, who lives in Cromer, took up the weekly run at Sheringham Park in 2012, just months following a liver transplant after suffering from Wilson's disease - a condition that causes copper to accumulate in parts of the body.
Mrs Acott encouraged people to take part wearing football tops - another sport David loved.
She said: 'It will be a chance to remember David and to raise funds for Children's Liver Disease Foundation, who supported the family when it was discovered David had liver disease.'
