Sophie's road to recovery

Hats off to little Sophie Gittus who's taking part in one of our Hearts First jogs this April.

The toddler and her parents, Kathryn and John, will be taking part in the York City Jog just 14 months after Sophie underwent life saving surgery.

Sophie was born with three heart defects, and still faces more operations as she grows up.

John, 29, a farmer, told The Press newspaper: "If it wasn't for the British Heart Foundation, Leeds Hospital wouldn't have had all the equipment it needed to diagnose Sophie's condition.

"Raising money for the charity is a way we can say thank you to everybody at the hospital - they saved our daughter's life."

Good luck Sophie!
