Complete the TCS London Marathon with Team CF
By joining Team CF at the 2022 TCS London Marathon, you’ll become part of a community that is uniting to ensure that everyone with cystic fibrosis (CF) can live a life unlimited.
CF is a genetic condition which causes sticky mucus to build up in the lungs and digestive system. One in 25 of us carries the faulty gene that causes it, usually without even knowing.
Over 10,800 people in the UK are currently living with CF, but the condition is still widely misunderstood.
Cystic Fibrosis Trust is the charity bringing people together to stop CF. We fund vital research, improve care, speak out and race towards effective treatments for all.
As part of Team CF, you’ll be joining an unstoppable community of members like Beth, who’s running 30 marathons this year to celebrate turning 30. She says: “30 was always that age we all aimed for in my generation of people born with CF, and I promised myself that if I made that milestone I would take on something big.
“Life with CF has been hard for many reasons. I’ve struggled a lot with my health and there have been many serious occasions I was worried I wouldn’t make it out.
“But I always look for the positives. I now have a four-year-old daughter who truly was my miracle baby. She pushes me to show her that anything is possible!
“Running the 2022 TCS London Marathon will be part of my big ‘30 for 30’ challenge, which will see me run 30 marathons in my 30th year. Participating in the London Marathon has been a dream of mine for a long time, and I’ve always wanted it to be included in my challenge!
“We can’t change the fact that we have CF – but we can always make the best of it.”
