THE STORY:

Hi, everyone! I’ve just joined the Run to Cure Cystic Fibrosis cause for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. I am running the Pittsburgh Half Marathon this year in an effort to raise money for research for new drug therapies, medical treatments, and a cure to this disease. Cystic fibrosis is a rare genetic disease affecting the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide). A defective gene causes the body to produce unusually thick, sticky mucus that clogs the lungs, leading to life-threatening lung infections. In the 1950s, few children with CF lived to attend elementary school. Today, because of advances in research and medical treatments, the can now expect to live into their 30s, 40s, and beyond. Learn more about Cystic Fibrosis and our chapter: www.cff.org/WesternPA. A side note-The foundation is very transparent about its financials, and I encourage you to explore this website in order to see where exactly your money is going. In this way, you can see that your contributions will make a difference. Please help give these brave men, women, and children more tomorrows!
