James Kouzaris and friend James Cooper, aged 25, were murdered by 16-year-old Shawn Tyson in Sarasota, USA, in the early hours of April 16, 2011.

Following the deaths of the two popular young men, friends and family set up a charity called Always A Chance, which aims to provide funding for projects that encourage young people who are outside full-time education and employment to re-engage with the education system or find employment.

On Saturday, July 16, the charity is inviting people to take part in the annual Jog for James event at Brixworth Country Park.
