A FIRST time runner is doing the Bupa 10k in memory of a 12-year-old student who died of cancer last year, writes Vicky Beckett.
Knowlton Crichlow, 23, from Harlesden, is running 10k in May for the Make A Wish Foundation in memory of Zohra Daidai, a Willesden student.
Mr Crichlow met Zohra working as a pastoral officer at the Convent of Jesus and Mary School, Park Avenue, Willesden. Three of Zohra's sisters also went to the school.
He describes her as 'an amazing girl,' who was inspirational.
