Newcastle girl band Quantro said the Great North Run has helped unite the band after a turbulent few months.
The group were put through to the bootcamp stages of X Factor but were thrown out of the competition after former member Lucie Slater was arrested on suspicion of glassing a former boyfriend.
Slater, of Ryton, Gateshead, faced a judge at Newcastle Crown Court charged with wounding with intent.
The 21-year-old, who has yet to enter a plea, is due to face trial in November.
Quantro, made up of Carly Ahmed, of South Shields, Emily Dyson, of Heworth, Gateshead, and former Miss Newcastle Hannah Gray, 21, of Ponteland, Northumberland will re audition for the X Factor next year.
Carly said: "We've had quite a rough time as a band these last few months, so we thought it would be good to do something together to get our spirits back up.
"Especially when it's for such a good cause."
Hannah said: "The chance came along with the Sarah's Hope Foundation for us to run together as a band, so I said the girls, your dream's come true."
