ORGANIZER: Cystic Fibrosis
EVENT: 2018 Pittsburgh Marathon
EVENT DATE: May 06, 2018
On October 24, 2017, my family welcomed the adorable and courageous Clayton Himmler. Not long after his arrival, Clayton was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. Though it has been a steep learning curve for all of us, especially his incredible parents, I'm not letting the steep hills of Pittsburgh stop me from running on behalf of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation with "Clayton's Army" in the Pittsburgh 1/2 Marathon on May 6, 2018. Please consider donating a few dollars to my funding page. All donations will help to further awareness, reasearch, and medications for people diagnosed wtih Cystic Fibrosis.

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 or donating to Team CF is about supporting patients who wake up everyday JUST to survive.
Will you join us as we run to raise awareness and funds to search for a cure? chapter: www.cff.org/WesternPA
