BENEFITING: Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
EVENT DATE: Sep 28, 2014
Reese turned 4 years old this September and is living with cystic fibrosis. His mom and dad discovered Reese has the disease when he was only three weeks old. Since that day, the family manages multiple medications and treatments to fight this disease. By the grace of God, Reese has remained healthy from day one. His struggle as a child and theirs as parents is to maintain his good health until a cure is found. YOU CAN HELP!!! With every donation and prayer we are that much closer to adding tomorrows to thousands of lives like Reese. Please show your support by making a donation today to the Cystic Fibrosis foundation.
What is Cystic Fibrosis?
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe.
Why I Chose to Raise Awareness & Money for CF
I am training for Ironman Chattanooga (IMCHOO) that is scheduled to take place on September 28th. I was aware of Reese's condition before I signed up for IMCHOO but did not understand the disease and the daily struggles that face Reese and his family. I shamefully admit I often take my health for granted. I am blessed to have the strength to participate in endurance events and want to use that priveledge to do something for others that are not as fortunate. My goal is to raise awareness and money for Cystic Fibrosis so that families like Reese's can have hope. This will be my first Ironman triathlon and am asking that you support me in my efforts by making a donation today. I will honor your commitment and donation by giving my best as training continues and and on race day.
Real progress has been made in the search for a cure, but the lives of people with CF are still cut far too short. There still is no cure for this devastating disease. By raising awareness and money, you are helping add tomorrows to the lives of people living with cystic fibrosis. Will you support this effort? Support me by making a donation to my fundraising campaign today!
