EMMA Suttle is taking up the challenge to complete a 10k run to raise money to help vital research into gene therapy.

On May 2 Emma, who lives in March, will be running in the Grand East Anglia Run in King's Lynn, hoping to raise �250 for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

She said: "I am aiming to raise the money following the loss of my friend Zoe Osler to the disease just last November. She was 21 and passed away on her son's second birthday.

"I am hoping to raise as much awareness as possible as the money raised is used to fund vital research into gene therapy which could eventually put an end to the pain and suffering of not only cystic fibrosis sufferers but also their families."
