ERIKA HINZE's Fundraiser:

A Reason to Run - Benefitting the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation

THE STORY:

Raising funds for the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation is something that's very important to me. My dad, Bernd, was diagnosed with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis in 2010. In February of 2011, after just three weeks on the transplant list, he received a double lung transplant at Toronto General Hospital.  I'd like to say we're in the clear again and that his new pipes are working as they should, but transplant isn't a quick fix, and comes with a lot of ups and downs. 

I'm running in this year's NYC Marathon as a tribute to my Dad, and for every other person who struggles to breathe.  It's my hope that one day we'll know what's taking your breath away. 

If you're interested in keeping tabs on my training progress, check out my blog @ http://bit.ly/Kejb3I.  Let's raise some funds!
