THE STORY:

Some of you may already know and some may not, but this year I’m stepping out of my comfort zone and running in the Pittsburgh Marathon! I’m so excited to do this and my why is for a 9 year old girl named Kaelyn. Her parents are our friends, whom we’ve met a few years ago. She battles Cystic Fibrosis everyday. CF is a progressive, genetic disease and affects both children and adults. It causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breathe over time. While there has been significant progress in treating this disease, there is still no cure and too many lives are cut far too short. My ‘comfort zone’ is nothing compared to what these children and adults, along with their families go through each and every day. So for this reason I’m running to raise funds for research to help find a CURE. I’m asking for your support and generosity in making donations to this foundation to make more futures for those diagnosed and affected with this disease. No amount is too small and will help towards an amazing cause. THANK-YOU! #KaelynsKure #PghMarathon Cystic Fibrosis Foundation wrote - Special thank you to this year's Platinum Sneaker Sponsor, Pro Bike + Run! When your alarm rings at 5 AM and all you can think about is staying in bed instead of getting up for your morning run, remember; it may seem hard, but "hard" is all about perspective. Imagine if your 5 AM alarm was for pills, enzymes, breathing and vest treatments... 5 AM wake ups would be a matter of trying to survive - not trying to squeeze in a run before work. Running with Team CF is about supporting patients who wake up everyday JUST to survive. Our Run To Cure CF team in Pittsburgh grows each year - as do our research efforts, drug and therapy developments, and progress we’ve made in the search for a cure to cystic fibrosis. Our community has celebrated many recent successes in research, but the lives of young people are still being cut far too short. Will you join us as we run to raise awareness and funds to search for a cure? Accept the challenge today to help add tomorrows to the lives of those living with CF. Consider registering to run, putting together a relay team, or making a donation to one of our dedicated team members. We will train hard to see that our team AND CF cross the finish line one day! 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.
