A MOTHER who lost her four-year-old son will be running the Bath half-marathon to raise funds for research into paediatric brain tumours.

Lisl Haldenwang, of Hammer Hill, Haslemere, is running in memory of young Otto, who died five years ago from medullablastoma, an aggressive form of brain tumour.

She is running for the charity Christopher's Smile and hopes to raise at least £500.

Christopher's Smile raises money to fund research in paediatric brain tumours and was set up by Karen and Kevin Capel following the death of their son.
