#TeamLucy tackle a virtual half marathon as a team

Although we still can’t meet in person for fundraising events, Sarah and her friends found a virtual way to run together as a team. Over the Easter weekend, over 70 runners across the UK (and internationally!) took on a half marathon to raise money for Lucy, Sarah’s 17-month-old daughter who has cystic fibrosis (CF). Here, Sarah reflects on organising an event during lockdown, her highs and lows, and her tips for training during a pandemic.

Tim's story: 50 years of living with cystic fibrosis

When Tim was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis (CF) in 1971, his parents were told he would only live to his teenage years. Instead, he celebrated his 50th birthday earlier this year. Tim, who has the double Delta F508 mutation, works full time as a Communications Manager in South London, where he lives with his wife, Katie, and 13-year-old son, Felix. In this blog, Tim takes a look back on how CF treatments have evolved over the last 50 years and reflects on key moments that changed his life, including cross-infection risks and Kaftrio.
