Gerry Beamond of Huddersfield, England, will dress as Harry Potter opens in new windowwhile participating in a half-marathon for Macmillan Cancer Relief. He hopes it will help generate additional sponsorship for his efforts to aid funding for cancer research.

The Great North Run is a 13.1-mile trek from Newcastle via Gateshead to South Shields.

Anyone who wants to support his efforts should contact Bob Riley, treasurer of the Holmfirth committee, on 01484 683211.

Mr. Beamond ran the London Marathon earlier this year, earning £2,500 for cancer relief.
