THE STORY:

Hello, generous friends! Ok, so I'm blatantly buttering you up. I should just be frank. But first, have you changed your hair lately? That's not it? You look great! It's hopeless. I hate asking for money. Dang, this is harder than the actual running part. 

I am going to run for a cause --  and its not to justify my piggish consumption of coffee, bakery treats and small talk after I run. I am running to help people with Cystic Fibrosis. It's a very serious disease that causes thick secretions of mucus to clog the airways in the lungs. People who suffer from it have a much reduced quality of life and life expectancy. There is no cure yet. But research is ongoing and your donations to this fundraising run can help the prospect of a cure become a reality someday, hopefully, very soon.

Please donate to the CF Foundation so you can feel good about contributing to such a worthy cause and having me sweat and perhaps barf in doing so, as well.

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is the world’s leader in the search for a cure for cystic fibrosis. They fund more CF research than any other organization, and nearly every CF drug available today was made possible because of Foundation support.

They are a nonprofit donor-supported organization dedicated to attacking cystic fibrosis from every angle. Their focus is to support the development of new drugs to fight the disease, improve the quality of life for those with CF, and ultimately to find a cure. 

I'm running the half marathon, which is like Ultra Marathon for an elite runner. I need to raise $400.00. Please donate whatever you can -- no donation is too small.:)

$400 - Half Marathon

Thank you all for your support!
