My story

[p]Pink Ladies running group are a group of ladies from the Downpatrick area and are all various levels of runners from the absolute beginner to those who complete longer distances. Some of the ladies have joined together to enter 3 teams in the Belfast marathon made up of Karin Rea, Sharon Morrison, Christine Boyd, Jo Donaghy, Laura Henry, Mel Addis, Elizabeth Poll Murray, Angela Doyle, Donna Torney, Sandra Mekitaria, Jen Banks, Lorraine Carville, Joanne Boyd, Veronica Bailie, Lindsay Stewart. The ladies have decided in doing so they would raise funds for cystic fibrosis trust as one of the ladies who is running with the Pink Ladies has a young son, Lorcan who suffers from the disease. [/p][p]There are around 500 people in Northern Ireland with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) including two year old Lorcán. CF is a genetic disorder that causes thick and sticky mucus to build up in the body, this damages many organs including the lungs, pancreas, liver, kidneys, and intestine. In 2017 half of people with CF died before the age of 31. The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is fighting for a life unlimited for everyone affected by CF. Their mission is to create a world where being born with CF no longer means a lifelong burden of care and an early death, when everyone living with the condition will be able to look forward to a long, healthy life. Lorcán’s family is so grateful for every penny donated towards this cause. They love their son to pieces and just want him to be happy and healthy. Thank you so much.[/p]
