Football shirts filled the trails at Sheringham Park as about 200 people took part in a charity Parkrun earlier this month.
Called David's Run, the event raised more than £900 for the King's Children's Transplant Team, and will go towards accommodation and kit costs for youngsters taking part in this year's Transplant Games in Birmingham.
The run, held for the third time, was in memory of David Acott, a 17-year-old and huge football fan, who died in 2015, two-and-a-half years after he had a lifesaving liver transplant after suffering from Wilson's Disease.
Janet Acott, David's mum, said: 'It was very moving and I received a really warm, spontaneous round of applause when I shared the photo of David winning his gold medal at the Transplant Games in 2014.'
David and his mum both became enthusiastic participants of the Sheringham in 2012, which Mrs Acott said changed both their lives for the better.
