Chris has started a Gofundme page with a target of £500 to help raise more money.
He has written on his page,
Hello everyone, my name is Chris , I am running the Great North Run in Newcastle to raise money for Carrickfergus Mental Health & Suicide Prevention group in memory of my nephew Frankie .
I am hoping to be able to help prevent further loss to suicide and enable support locally for depression and mental health and can only do this through fundraising at present .
Can I please ask that you show support and donate even a pound to the go fund me page.
This is a televised race and I was selected out of thousands of applicants.
Thank you so much Chris Dorrian
