BLF supporters run Belfast Marathon


The British Lung Foundation Northern Ireland has welcomed the efforts of all those who supported the charity in yesterday’s Belfast Marathon.

BLF Development Officer for Northern Ireland, Nessie Blair MBE, took part for the fifth consecutive year to raise money for the charity.

Nessie said: “It’s always such a positive event, with so many people doing what they can for causes that they feel strongly about.

“I’m raising money for the British Lung Foundation because I’ve seen first hand the life-changing difference that its work makes to those

with lung conditions in Northern Ireland.”

Head of the British Lung Foundation for Scotland & Northern Ireland, Dr James Cant, said: “We’re absolutely delighted that such a great deal of

effort is being invested in the Belfast marathon for the British Lung Foundation.

“Events like these are a great way to raise funds and awareness, but the time and effort devoted by all those taking part is a real labour of love.”
