I did it! Despite the heat, my sister and I finished the marathon in 4 hours and 17 minutes. Would have been faster if I hadn't cramped up

Mileage Tracker: 300

THE STORY:

Friends,

Only 7 weeks to go before I run the 26.2 miles from Hopkinton to Boston!  Training has been going pretty well as global warming has led to a mild winter for running outdoors.  I am reaching out to again to ask for your help in raising money for CF research.  As many of you know, the drug I have been working on the past 4 years was just approved by the FDA for the treatment of CF in patients with a specific mutation called G551D.  It is so gratifying that all the hard work that my colleagues at Vertex and I did resulted in a treatment for patients with this life-threatening illness.  The CF Foundation played a huge role in getting the kalydeco project off the ground.  This amazing organization completely depends on support from donors like yourselves.  Please help me support them so they can fund further research programs like the ones at Vertex.

Thanks in advance for your help!

-Karl
