Why run for Cystic Fibrosis Trust?

The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is the only UK-wide charity dedicated to fighting for a life unlimited by cystic fibrosis for everyone living with the condition. We are investing in cutting-edge research, supporting clinical care, and campaigning tirelessly on the issues that matter, but we need your help. Together we will beat cystic fibrosis for good.

I signed up for the London Marathon as I wanted to do something incredible for my 40th birthday, and to show others that CF can still allow you to do crazy challenges. As the treatments for CF and knowledge about CF get better and better, our outlook is better now than it ever has been. By pushing ourselves we can strive to achieve much more than ever imagined. But it’s been a long road to get here…'
