Toby and Tyler's charity run

25 September 2013

The Bantams would like to draw its supporters' attention to the brave fundraising efforts of two young City fans.

Along with his four year-old brother Tyler, eight year-old Toby Hunter (positioned left in the main article picture) is to take part in the 1.5K Mini Yorkshire Run in Sheffield this coming Sunday (29 September 2013).

Toby and Tyler, both registered Junior Bantams, will be running the course this weekend to help raise funds for Bradford Disability FC. This feat is all the more remarkable considering that Toby was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy in his legs when he was aged just three.

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 FC since the age of six.

As the name may suggest, Bradford Disability FC 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 FC is former Bantams striker Ian Ormondroyd, who is also currently the head of the club's community foundation department.
