BENEFITING: CYSTIC FIBROSIS FOUNDATION (inactive)
ORGANIZER: CYSTIC FIBROSIS FOUNDATION (inactive)
EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2016
EVENT DATE: May 01, 2016
I have taken on the challenge of participating in the 2016 Dick’s Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon as part of the Run to Cure CF team! Every mile I run (and I'm part of a relay - so won't be running the entire marathon -- just a leg of it) will help raise money to fund vital cystic fibrosis (CF) research, education, and care programs. Please help me meet my fundraising goal by sponsoring me.
Your generous gift will be used efficiently and effectively - As one of the most efficient and effective organizations of its kind; the Foundation is an accredited charity of the Better Business Bureau’s Wise Giving Alliance, meeting all of its Standards for Charitable Accountability.
Cystic fibrosis is a devastating genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. More than ten million Americans are symptomless carriers of the defective CF gene. Advances continue to be made in finding a cure, but your help is needed now - more than ever - to help keep up the momentum of this life-saving research.

Any amount you can donate will be greatly appreciated! Your donation is 100% tax deductible. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those with cystic fibrosis. Thank you for supporting the mission of the CF Foundation!
