9 Year Old Running for Devon Air Ambulance Trust

Cohen Phillips, 9, is running the Bupa Junior Great South Run in Portsmouth on 25th October in aid of Devon Air Ambulance Trust. Cohen, who is known for his running talent locally in his hometown of Barnstaple, enters this year’s race having already made a name for himself.

In 2013, Cohen won the Mini event at the Great South Run. Since turning 9, he will age up into the Junior event facing competitors who will range from ages 9 to 15. Daunting as it may seem, Cohen is a true champion, looking forward to the race ahead. As the North Devon School Champion at Cross Country, Cohen’s parents state that he channels Mo Farrah every time he enters a race.

There is more to this boy than his talent though. Even at a young age, Cohen knows he can support the community through his love for running. He made the decision with his family to run for Devon Air Ambulance Trust, raising funds for a Charity he understands the community relies on. Cohen’s parents Wayne and Michelle Phillips are grateful to everyone who is supporting their son in his endeavour. “We are so proud of Cohen and thankful to everyone who is supporting our little boy with a massive heart, who wants to raise as much money as he can for such a great Charity”.

It is truly remarkable that the spirit of giving back can be instilled in such young members of the community. Caroline Creer, Director of Fundraising at Devon Air Ambulance Trust, says, “We would like to thank Cohen for being one of our youngest supporters and commend his awareness of the Charity’s work in the community. We wish him the best of luck with his run this autumn”.
