Chris achieves record run after heart attack

ChrisCallaghanFinishWeb2008: Norwich Christian homeless project leader Chris Callaghan (right) has completed a five km run in a personal best time only months after suffering a heart attack.

Chris, who leads the House of Genesis project in Norwich for homeless young men, suffered an unexpected heart attack last September and on May 11 ran the  5km with the Coltishall Jaguars running club in a personal best of 29 mins and 53 secs
"The run went really well," said Chris. Despite the hot sun I achieved a personal best. I want to thank everyone for their support. It is amazing from where I was last September. To God be the Glory!"
NewHopeIndiaOrphanageWebChris ran to raise cash for a charity which is supported by his church, Grace Christian Fellowship on Mile Cross Lane, Norwich. It is called Hope Community Trust and supports a children's orphanage and school as well as a Bible school in a remote part of India called Andhra Pradesh.
Project India UK is a Christian organization which helps support the poor in Andhra Pradesh and the project is run by Pastor Zion Samuel of Viskhapatnam and is part of registered UK charity Hope Community Trust. Project India UK works with some of the poorest people in India, who have no support from any area and rely on charitable donations.
