Ten-year-old Max Clark has taken on a running challenge for charity less than a year after losing his leg in a horror smash.

The youngster was enjoying a day in the park with friends when he was struck by a motorbike at ‘crazy speeds’ on May 25 last year.

His leg was amputated from the knee down and he was fitted with a prosthetic.

Max, from Hull, is now running a mile a day to raise funds so other children can have access to the same physiotherapy that has allowed him to walk and run again.

The aspiring gymnast said: ‘I just want to help other children so no one has to struggle. I want to do my part.

‘I’m quite fearless. And I’ll do any challenge there is.

‘I love running, even if it’s very tiring.’

Motorbike rider Jerome Cawkwell, 24, who fled the scene, was jailed for three years for causing a serious injury by dangerous driving.
