Sarah ran the Cardiff Half Marathon

Sarah Messer, the daughter of former Newport GP Dr Denis Morgan who died of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis in 2017, ran the Cardiff Half Marathon last weekend in his memory.

It was her first half marathon and she has so far raised the staggering amount of £2540 for Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis. The funds are in aid of research.

Sarah says: “Little is known about the disease and its causes, but what is known is that there is no cure. This is why it is vital that money goes into research in order that to maybe one day find a cure.”
