Toby and Tyler complete Yorkshire run

2 October 2013

Young City supporters Toby and Tyler Hunter successfully completed their Mini Yorkshire Run challenge in Sheffield last Sunday (29 September 2013).

Toby, 8, and Tyler, 4, both finished the run in just over ten minutes - a feat all the more remarkable considering Toby (on the right in main article picture) was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy in his legs when he was aged just three years-old.

The brothers, who are both registered as Junior Bantams, were running in the 1.5K event to help raise funds for Bradford Disability F.C.

As the main article picture shows, both Toby and Tyler completed the run proudly wearing their full City kits!

Despite many hours of physio and a large number hospital appointments during his young life, Toby has still managed to play football with Bradford Disability F.C since the age of six.

As the name may suggest, Bradford Disability F.C is a local group that aims to bring the sport of football to anyone with a learning or physical disability.

The Bradford-based club, which is run by volunteers, tries to participate in as many tournaments and matches with other disability football clubs as possible around the country.

The chairman of Bradford Disability F.C is former Bantams striker Ian Ormondroyd, who is also currently the head of the club's community foundation department.

There will be a bucket collection held for Bradford Disability F.C around the Coral Windows Stadium ahead of City's next home match with Tranmere Rovers on Sunday 13 October 2013.

Toby and Tyler's father, Graeme Hunter, has been in contact with staff at Bradford City to ask the official website to pass on a big thank you from himself and the boys to all the City supporters who took the time to donate.

Over £300.00 has been raised so far through donations.

Fans can still make a donation to Toby and Tyler, however, by clicking on the link below.
