THE STORY:

UPDATE

Folks

The fundraiser last year was a big success with $860 donated to the CFF and the Warricks matching that amount with a donation to the Pittsburgh Botanic Garden. To those of you who donated, congratulations and thanks again. Your money went far to help two great causes.

This year I am again running the Pittsburgh Marathon (26.2 miles) and continuing to raise money for the CFF. Please consider giving any amount. 

So far we have raised $625 with this year's campaign. That means we are almost two thirds of the way to our $1000 goal! If you haven't donated yet won't you please help us reach our goal and put us over the top?

If you give $75.00 or more I will provide you with one seedling tree. Or if you wish, I can donate it to the Pittsburgh Botanic Garden. If you give $100 or more I will provide you with two, different seedling trees. Or if you wish, I can donate them to the Pittsburgh Botanic Garden. The PBG would use these trees at plant sale fundraisers or for planting at the botanic garden site.

These trees are small now (1-2') but will grow fast. I started them from seed. More information about these species can be found at:

Our Run to Cure CF team in Pittsburgh continues to grow each year, as do our research efforts and the progress we’ve made in the search for a cure. Real progress toward a cure has been made, but the lives of young people are still cut far too short. Won’t you join us in continuing the search for a cure? Accept the challenge today and help add tomorrows to the lives of those living with cystic fibrosis by making a donation to John Warrick's fundraiser!

We've made incredible progress in the fight against cystic fibrosis, but we still need to strive to cross that finish line and find a cure!

What Is Cystic Fibrosis?

Cystic fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide). A defective gene and its protein product cause the body to produce unusually thick, sticky mucus that clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening lung infections, and obstructs the pancreas and stops natural enzymes from helping the body break down and absorb food.

In the 1950s, few children with cystic fibrosis lived to attend elementary school. Today, advances in research and medical treatments have further enhanced and extended life for children and adults with CF. Many people with the disease can now expect to live into their 30s, 40s and beyond.
