Run 4 Rod

British resident Touchelle Smyth is to run the Lisbon half marathon on Sunday to raise funds to pay for a life-saving kidney transplant for her husband Rod.

Having suffered with diabetes since childhood, Rod was diagnosed with kidney failure 10 years ago, one month after the birth of his daughter Phoebe, and has been on a transplant waiting list ever since.
