 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.

We all had an amazing time up the North East and it was great to run in the GNR for a charity which is very close to my heart . Everyone had a blast and we would do it all over again in a heartbeat. Thank you so much for your hospitality at the end, we all thoroughly enjoyed the massages!
