Liam McHugh - Cystic Fibrosis Trust
Liam is the 2nd of our #MarathonHeroes - people doing extraordinary things to raise money for great causes. Here, he tells us his reasons for running the London Marathon...
"The charity that I run for is the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. This charity is very close to my heart as our only child Rachel was born with this condition 26 years ago.
When Rachel was born life expectancy was 16 years of age. Several years and marathons later and I'm approaching the £200,000.00 mark for fundraising for the CF Trust Rachel is doing great. Life expectancy has soared to 42 years old and rising due to research and fundraising. Rachel has a degree, Masters and is in her final year of completing a PhD all in Psychology. We are so proud of her."
