Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard joined the Run With George campaign, running with George Mathias in support of the Alder Hey Children’s Charity.

Ten-year-old George is running 75 miles, a mile for every month his younger brother James has been alive, to raise money for the Alder Hey Children’s Hospital.

Born premature, James needed serious treatment to save his life, and George is seeking donations at his SponsorMe page.

Supporting George in his efforts, Gerrard met the brothers at Liverpool’s Kirkby academy, where he is now serving as a youth coach after the end of his playing career.

He also sat down with George and James for an interview about his career as Reds captain, his favourite Liverpool goal and his toughest opponents.

Asked to nominate two other Liverpool figures to take part, Gerrard went for Jordan Henderson and Jurgen Klopp–so watch this space.

At time of writing, Run With George has raised over £9,500 for the Alder Hey Children’s Charity.

* You can donate to George’s campaign here or text George to 70660 to give £3.00.

To mark the end of the 30-year wait for a league title, the ‘Liverpool Mishmash’ poster is available to order exclusively on This Is Anfield — the history of the Reds in one image!
