Andrew Grehan, Westmeath
“2008 is my third year running the marathon. I’ve always run for ILFA and will continue to do so to try to create more awareness for lung fibrosis and to help continue to support the good work being done by all involved. Knowing I can make some sort of difference to someone else’s life is very uplifting and motivational and makes finishing a marathon all the more worthwhile”
