THE STORY:

Hi friends!! I am taking advantage of an upcoming half marathon that I'm scheduled to run, to try to raise money to contribute to the organization, Rock CF. Rock CF is a nonprofit dedicated to improving quality of life for individuals living with CYstic Fibrosis. As there are 30,000 adults living with CF in the United States today, many of you reading this may know someone directly who is living with the condition, or may know of someone peripherally. For those who don't have much info on it, I am pasting some below, from the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. "Cystic fibrosis is a life-threatening, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and progressively limits the ability to breathe. In people with CF, a defective gene causes a thick, buildup of mucus in the lungs, pancreas and other organs. In the lungs, the mucus clogs the airways and traps bacteria leading to infections, extensive lung damage and eventually, respiratory failure." While life expectancy and quality of life has improved for folks with CF during recent years, this is still a condition that reduces lifespan substantially, and often means that the individual's daily life is dominated by frequent hospital stays, and various physical discomforts. Let's combine forces to make things better and more livable! Any little bit counts. $5, $50, $500 or $1, it all makes a difference. Thanks so much :)
