“We couldn’t believe how many people came up to us and told them that either they, or someone they knew had Pernicious Anaemia”.

That’s what the four runners in this year’s Cardiff Half-Marathon told us after they successfully completed the course.

The ladies, all from Rhondda Cynon Taff, heard about the society and asked for running vests so that they could raise awareness of the society.

“We were aghast! At least 35 people approached us before the race started and at the end. Most had no idea that the society existed” they reported.

Please let us know if you would like to participate in any event and would like a t-shirt or running vest to help raise awareness amongst the general public. You can also get yourself sponsored whilst raising awareness and fundraise for the Pernicious Anaemia Society.
Check out what others have done for the Society and how to start your own fundraise event or if you want us to promote your event on our Fundraising Page.
