Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is an inherited disease that causes thick, sticky mucus to form in the lungs, pancreas and other organs. In the lungs, this mucus blocks the airways, causing lung damage and making it hard to breathe. In the pancreas, it clogs the pathways leading to the digestive system, interfering with proper digestion.
All of the money I raise by running the Portland Marathon will go to the local chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in Portland, Oregon to continue to fund the research for a cure.
I AM A CYSTIC FIBROSIS WARRIOR.
I AM FIT TO FIGHT.
