Pub landlord’s sister-in-law to run 10k in aid of Alport UK

Date published: 30 July 2018

The sister-in-law of a popular Rochdale pub landlord will take on the Rochdale 10k this year to raise money for Alport UK.

Ruth Radanovic will be running the Rochdale 10k for the charity, which raises funds for research into a cure, as her nephew, Oliver Boothman, has the condition.

Ruth’s brother-in-law Ben, who runs the Flying Horse Hotel, said: “My wonderful sister-in-law Ruth Radanovic is running the 10k in Rochdale this year in aid of Alport UK.”

Alport syndrome, which affects Ben’s eldest child, Oliver, is a genetic condition characterised by kidney disease, hearing loss, and eye abnormalities.

Oliver was diagnosed with the condition in 2013, which affects his hearing and will mean that he will need a new kidney in the future.

Ben added: “As some may know our eldest has Alports, which affects his hearing and will mean one day – perhaps a few times – he will need a new kidney. Please give this a share or even donate a fiver if you can spare it.”

The Rochdale 10k will take place on Sunday 7 October, following a route along the canal, looping along cycleways before retracing its steps to finish outside the start at the Town Hall.
