Paediatric forensic radiographer Elzene Kruger is encouraging people to take part in this year's Three Dams challenge to raise vital funds for the Sheffield Childrens Hospital Charity.

People are urged to sign up to an annual walking event for a Sheffield hospital.

The Three Dams challenge sees participants tackle a five, 10 or 15-mile route around the dams of Ladybower, Derwent and Howden in aid of Sheffield Children’s Hospital.

Money raised will go to the hospital charity’s Make it Better appeal, which aims to raise £10 million to transform Sheffield Children’s Hospital by 2016.

Elzene Kruger, a paediatric forensic radiographer at the hospital, will be among those taking part.

She said: “Over the last 10 years, I have witnessed the progress and healing of many young patients who visit the X-ray department – some of who will join us on the walk.

“It is so rewarding to see how courageous some patients are and how broken and damaged bones can sometimes heal beyond belief.

“As a paediatric forensic radiographer, I strive to use the best imaging techniques to diagnose medical and surgical problems.

“Many of the specialist pieces of equipment have been funded by the charity, so I know how important sponsorship money is and exactly how far it can go.”

The challenge is on Sunday, October 5. For details, call 0114 271 7203.
