EVENT DATE: May 05, 2013
Thanks so much for visiting my fundraising page!
Most of you know that I'm not much of a runner -- other than hip hop class (of course hip hop class) I hate to sweat! Yet I have, gulp, committed to running the Pittsburgh Half Marathon to support the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Why? Besides the peer pressure of family and friends urging me on, I have seen and heard many stories over the years about CF, both in my pediatric practice and even more so through my husband Steve, who has worked at the CF Foundation for many years.
Rather than tell you about CF myself, you can click on the video to the left and learn from a family whose children have CF what it is like to live with this disease every day.
The CF Foundation funds more CF research than any other organization, and nearly every CF drug available today was made possible because of Foundation support.
Thank you for any support you can give to this important cause!
