Crowds of spectators cheered two-year-old Lewis Hollowell across the finish line at the Langtoft Fun Run last weekend, for his sheer determination at completing the race even with a broken leg.

Lewis, who was the first to enter the fun run, was heart broken when he broke his leg just days before the race, after falling from his trampoline.

But, being the superhero he is, Lewis managed to complete the run alongside his parents who pushed him around in his pushchair and then let him hop across the finish line at the end.

Lewis’ mum, Sarah said: “He was made up when he finished the race. I’m so proud of him, it was a very special moment.”

From completing the race, Lewis has managed to raise more than £80 for his school, Langtoft Pre-School. That includes a donation of £50 from race sponsors, Empire Gymnasium in Market Deeping.
