EVENT DATE: May 01, 2016
Why do i Run?
I Run to Cure CF, I Run 4UAbi!
Its that time again, I was so inspired and moved by my last marathon experience i decided to do it again, but this time the half marathon. I will be running 13.1 miles, I will keep running until there is a cure found for CF or my legs no longer allow me to run, hopefully the sooner comes before the latter.
A little update on our girl Abi:
Abi has blossomed into a vibrant young lady!! Her favorite things to do are play softball, do crafts and go swimming!! She is staying pretty much in the range of BMI, weight and height that the doctors want her at. This isn't an easy task as our little fighter prefers salads over pizza and yogurt over ice cream. (Don't we all wish that gaining weight was our goal!)
She continues to do an hour of therapy every day while taking enzymes and other pills as well. This tiny little hero rarely complains about any of it, but does sometimes need some motivation to do it all every day. Getting to go stay at Grandma and Grandpa's or Aunt Sam and Aunt Sonia's are usually just the ticket!!! She recently got to be the assistant coach of Aunt Sam's basketball team for a day and boy did she love it!! (Mostly just coloring on the white board and laughing at Aunt Sam try to keep her cool during the games!)
If you want to know what a true hero looks like, Abi is your girl!! She continues to amaze us and we continue to raise money to find a cure for her!!! The CFF has made leaps and bounds of advancement in 2015 and we think 2016 is going to be even better!!! We will keep Abi as healthy as we can until we can say we have FOUND THE CURE!!!! Please help us give more tomorrows to Abi by donating to my run!! Any amount is appreciated and welcomed!
