“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.
