In October last year Tom Wood ran his first ever marathon to raise money for CFUK. Sporting one of our t shirts Tom finished the Manchester Marathon in the commendable time of 3 hrs 53 minutes and raised a tremendous £1134. Tom’s partner’s daughter, Maeve, has cystinosis.
Tom posted the following on completion:
“I can honestly say it was one of the hardest things I’ve done. I think I aged 10 years somewhere after mile 22. I’m now lying in the bath. I may need some help getting out! Thank you to all those who have supported me to raise money for the Cystinosis Foundation UK. Particularly thanks go to Sinead Byrne and Maeve Byrne who have supported me over the months of training and who were at the finish line to cheer me on.”
