Tom

Tom joined Team CF because his girlfriend has cystic fibrosis. He got hooked on running last year and ran a marathon as part of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust Running Festival. 

"I ran for CF because Emma is a sufferer and living with her this year has given me an insight in to her daily struggles. Seeing how new treatments have really helped her be more comfortable is the driver in me wanting to raise more money so more solutions and advances can be made."

Kate

Over the years, Kate has walked, cycled and volunteered at events for the Trust, as well as holding fundraisers like virtual quizzes. Her youngest son has cystic fibrosis.

"The CF community are a family and when our family fundraises, we do it for every single member of that family and we’ll keep going until every single one of them has what they need to live a long and healthy life."

Rachael

Rachael took part in the virtual Virgin London Marathon in 2020, to keep a promise to her friend who had cystic fibrosis that she would apply for a place the year she turned 40.

"I really hope the money I raised can make a small difference to someone out there, whether it's to provide support to a family, or whether it goes towards an important research study into new treatments."

Craig

Craig, who has CF, has taken part in many running events to raise money for the Trust. Running helps him stay on top of his physical health and improves his mental health too.

"It means a lot to me as I feel that I’m doing this not only as part of a team, but as part of a community. It really makes me push that little bit more and I don’t feel like I’m doing this all on my own."
