Just 3 months ago, Henry Clunies-Ross was hospital-bound with the tough possibility that he might lose his leg. During Round 1 of the Intrust Super Shute Shield, he suffered a nasty gash to his leg which became infected overnight by a flesh-eating bug that threatened his life. Fast forward to today, Henry Clunies-Ross has just completed the City 2 Surf in an incredible 74 minutes to raise money for the hospital that saved his life, the Prince of Wales.
