My son, Clayton, was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at birth in October of 2017. I am running the PIttsburgh Half Marathon to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. I am running for all those impacted by CF - patients, family, and friends. Please support me in raising $3500 to help support the research in curing CF! No donation is too small.

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 that it may seem hard, but "hard" is all about perspective. Imagine if 5 AM was about taking pills, enzymes, breathing treatments, and wearing a shaker vest... 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 the patients who get up at 5 AM 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 cystic fibrosis.
