THE STORY:

Hey there, and Thanks for visiting my fundraising page for the 2014 Pittsburgh Marathon! 

For those of you who want to read no further, here the key stats:

 - Who: Kevin Cullen

 - What: 26.2 miles and a goal of raising $100.00 per mile.  Each mile another opportunity for you to laugh when I fall down or stub my toe.

 - When: May 4th, 2014

 - Where: Pittsburgh, PA 

 - Why: Because I care a great deal about finding a cure for CF and because the research in the field in recent years has given new reasons to be hopeful for that cure. 

TO DONATE, all you have to do is click the bright yellow box on the right side of the screen and follow the instructions from there.  When asked the number of US Dollars you would like to give, simply enter $1,000,000.00 (or whatever you are able to donate).  Any and all amounts will be appreciated. 

On this page I will update everyone on the status of my training - starting with a training race (a half marathon) I will be running on March 2 in NJ, and continuing though the last 10 weeks of my training.  Be on the lookout for embarrassing photos, and potentially some running selfies (something I only allow in the name of fundraising). 

Thank you, thank you, thank you for your consideration and I hope that together, we can make CF stand for Cure Found.  

- Kevin

 

UPDATE 3/2/14

Ran my halfway there half marathon today while the snow started to fall in a time of 1:38:24.  Overall a great day for a run, but not sure what the runners in tank tops were thinking...As promised, I uploaded another photo from after the race.  

 

About the Foundation:

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is the world’s leader in the search for a cure for cystic fibrosis. We fund more CF research than any other organization, and nearly every CF drug available today was made possible because of Foundation support.

We are a nonprofit donor-supported organization dedicated to attacking cystic fibrosis from every angle. Our focus is to support the development of new drugs to fight the disease, improve the quality of life for those with CF, and ultimately to find a cure.

DONATION: $50

I, Mark Bustard, donate the equivalent of a 1/2 mile to your marathon. However you have the opportunity to increase that amount after by a number of ways.. 1. Distance ran backwards adds $10 per 1/10th a mile. You run one mile backwards, that $100 there pal. You know math, you get the idea. 2. Not sure what to wear on race day? Any Philadelphia Eagles apparel worn during the race adds $80 (the first year the Eagles made it to the super bowl, yep you guessed it, we lost). 3. You like beer, this'll be easy. Shotgun a beer sometime during the race adds $64 (b/c Miller 64 is undoubtedly your favorite beer). 4. Legs tired by mile 26.199? Simply cross the finish line either walking on your hands or doing the worm adds $100. You have 10 days till race day and now that your workout is easing up, spend that free time learning how to walk on your hands (if you don't already know), stashing a brew somewhere along the race, or finding some trendy Eagles apparel. I have a brian westbrook jersey I'm willing to overnight you if need be. All opportunities to add donations should be documented for proof and also for other people's enjoyment. We're all in this together, good luck. Mark 5 years ago
