The Cystic Fibrosis Trust took centre stage at the Brecon Carreg Cardiff Bay Run as hundreds of runners raised thousands at one of Wales’ most popular 10K races.
The sun shone on Cardiff’s historic Bay as almost 5,000 competitors raced past Wales Millennium Centre, past the Norwegian Church and along the idilc Cardiff Bay Barrage. Lead Charity Partner the Cystic Fibrosis Trust brought an army of 140 runners, who took on the flat course under the Team CF banner.
Their efforts raised a grand total of £6,500 to help make a real difference for thousands of people with cystic fibrosis in the UK, and their families and carers.
Cystic Fibrosis Events Director, Scarlett Sharpe, said: “We had a fantastic day at the Brecon Careg Cardiff Bay Run. Well done to all of our Team CF runners who took part! Our amazing team have raised over £12,500 to date, which will help make a difference to thousands of people with cystic fibrosis in the UK. It was great to meet so many of our runners in the event village.”
The leading charity also had a large presence in the Event Village to spread the word about the invaluable work they undertake for those affected by the life-limiting condition.
