Jamie Carragher gives his backing to a campaign to help send a two-year-old child to the United States for cancer treatment.

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has pledged his support to help send an ill child to the United States for cancer treatment.

Fundraisers are aiming to add towards a £250,000 target for two-year-old Amelia-Mae Davies, who suffers from neuroblastoma, by running from Brighton to Liverpool's Alder Hey Hospital.

"I'll be proud to be there supporting the running to Save Amelia Mae Team when they cross the finishing line," Carragher told the Liverpool Daily Post.

"These amazing people would have run 250 miles, that's like nine-and-a-half marathons back to back, to help raise the money desperately needed for Amelia's life-saving treatment. Please come out and show your support on the route through our city for Amelia and the team."

The run gets underway tomorrow.
