Ryan, who lead the pub crawl as Jim Carrey's character Dumb from the hit film Dumb and Dumber, is preparing to take part in the London Marathon in October and he will be running to raise funds for the CF Trust again.

Delighted when he was accepted to take part Ryan (35) will be joined by his father in law, Gary Ingham, for his third marathon and they have set themselves a fundraising target of £5,000.

The Cystic Fibrosis Trust, is a UK-based national charity founded in 1964.

Since he started on the new drug therapy, approved by the US Food and Drug Administration in 2019, Ryan's lung capacity has increased from 25 per cent to 60 per cent.

The 35-year-old is grateful to his own GP, who pressed for Ryan to have the medication, as it has not only enhanced the quality of his life it has kept him out of hospital.
