THE STORY:


Natalie is a fun loving 5 year old who loves hiking, kayaking, swimming, popcorn parties, jumping in her big trampoline, and playing fun games with her sister Hailey. 


Natalie was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis before she was even born. She takes 20 pills or more a day and has been able to swallow them whole for over 2 years now. Natalie visits Children's Hospital every 2 months and sometimes needs to be admitted for a week or more for IV antibiotics. She also does chest physiotherapy 2 to 4 times a day, which can take up to 2 hours out of her day.  


Natalie's parents are amazing people who are constanly fundraising for CF, to find a cure for Natalie.  This year I have joined Natalie's Team with family and friends to help raise the money needed to cure this disease.  If it's in your heart and budget, please consider helping me meet my goal! 









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!

All Run To Cure CF team members receive:

- FREE bib for race of your choice

- Run To Cure CF gender specific performance tank or shirt

- Group training runs and other events

- Personal support from running coaches and mentors

- Race specific training plans and tips

- Fundraising incentives from Fleet Feet, Pro Bike + Run, & more!

Thank you, Fleet Feet Pittsburgh, for also supporting Team CF!

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.
