This September we NEED YOU to sign up and Go the Distance for Pulmonary Fibrosis.
During PF Month, we are asking you to Go the Distance raise vital awareness and funds for APF. Whatever you do and wherever you do it, you will be helping us support those affected by Pulmonary Fibrosis.
Set your distance to your ability. For example, if you are a first time runner, 5k is a good milestone to work towards. Maybe you’d like to rack up those miles in steps and walk the distance? Maybe you’d prefer to cycle or swim it? You could even take part in a sponsored family walk . Whatever you do – your distance counts!
FREE to register! Once you register you will be sent your APF T-shirt and fundraising pack.
Choose a date between 1st and 30th September, then pick your distance to run, jog, walk, cycle or swim.
1. Set your target
