ANNELISA Foster from Hereford will spend her 31st birthday taking part in The Great North Run on Sunday to raise funds for the Parkinson's Disease Society (PDS). Annelisa aims to raise more than £500 in sponsorship, helping the charity to continue the development of its services and support to people living with Parkinson's and to fund essential medical and welfare research.

Annelisa has chosen to run on behalf of the PDS because her grandfather suffered from the disease for many years. She will cover a gruelling 13.1 miles along with more than 80 other PDS team runners
