The Story

EVENT DATE: Oct 13, 2019

2019 Bank of America Chicago Marathon

In 1993, former NFL quarterback Boomer Esiason and wife, Cherly, learned that their son was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis (CF) - an incurable genetic disease that attacks the lungs. Never ones to back down from a fight, they founded the Boomer Esiason Foundation (BEF) and decided right then & there to fight for the CF community and for a cure. 

 

Team Boomer is a growing program of BEF that encourages people with CF to incorporate exercise into their everyday lives, provides athletes a way to raise money for CF, and offers an avenue for athletic events to contribute to our fight against CF.
