Congratulations go to Fraser Garrow of AS Mosley, who recently completed the Edinburgh Marathon in aid of PSC Support, raising £2500…and counting.
PSC Support helps people affected by Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC), a rare auto-immune liver disease affecting one in 10,000 people in the UK. As well as driving research, the charity provides crucial support to sufferers.
Fraser was diagnosed with PSC two years ago. Although the condition causes fatigue, he continues to enjoy his life-long hobby of running. Following a hilly half marathon last year, he decided to embark on the challenge of a full Marathon. After 16 weeks of intense training, he crossed the finishing line in just 3 hours, 28 minutes - a super time for his first marathon!
Fraser comments: “Even though I’m a keen runner, this was a real test! But the fact I was doing it for such a worthy cause, helped get me through. I feel very proud to have contributed and to have helped raise awareness of PSC. Currently, there is no known cure for the illness, so the support provided by PSC Support is even more important for those battling the condition. It was a great experience and I’m pleased to have bagged my first marathon before I turn 30 (just!).”
