The Lost Lake Run is about 16 miles of awesomeness to support people with Cystic Fibrosis. This is my 2nd time participating in this run. I am impressed with the organization and amount of money raised since the start of the very first race in 1992. Please consider donating to this amazing organization.
Cystic Fibrosis is a progressive, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breathe over time. According to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Patient Registry, in the United States:
- More than 30,000 people are living with cystic fibrosis
- Approximately 1000 new case are diagnosed each year
- More than 75% of people with CF are diagnosed by age of 2
- More than half of CF population is age 18 or older
