Why do the Great North Run for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust?
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a life-shortening genetic condition that affects over 10,000 people in the UK by causing thick mucus to clog the lungs and digestive system. Hours of physiotherapy and tens of tablets a day can help keep some of the symptoms at bay, but many people with CF will go on to require a double-lung transplant. The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is the only UK-wide charity dedicated to creating a life unlimited by cystic fibrosis by investing in research, providing support and campaigning hard on the issues that matter.
