THE STORY:

13.1 miles is crazy- who would want to run 13.1 miles? I do. I have run 13.1 miles multiple times, but this year when I gather at the start line I am running not just for myself, I am running for a bigger reason- MANDIE'S NEW LUNGS. Ten years ago my sorority sister Mandie received a new set of lungs- to celebrate her and her amazing life, this year I am running with Run to Cure CF.
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is the most prevalent genetic disease in the United States. It substantia...lly impairs normal respiratory and digestive functions for those affected, making the simple acts of eating and breathing a challenge. Ten million Americans are symptomless carriers of the defective CF gene.
Advances continue to be made towards finding a cure for CF, and newly developed therapies have made a significant difference in treating the life-threatening symptoms of the disease. Although this research progress is promising, it is not enough. For the first time in the foundation’s history, scientific opportunities are arising at a pace that exceeds the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s ability to fund them. To maintain the exciting momentum of this progress, the foundation will need your help now more than ever.
Too many young lives depend on this vital research to let it slip by unfunded!
Run to Cure CF is the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's charity team in the 2016 Dick’s Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon. On May 1, 2016, I'm running in the 2016 Pittsburgh Half Marathon to support the fight against CF. Please help me meet my fundraising goal of $400 by sponsoring me in this event.
