THE STORY:

This is my 5th consecutive year running for the Cystic FIbrosis Foundation and the Pittsburgh Half-Marathon. I am extremely grateful to be able to say that I've been helping to raise money for the CF foundation since I was 16 years old and only a sophomore in highschool. I'm now 20 years old and about to complete my sophomore year at Washington & Jefferson college where I am planning to get my degree in International Business and Spanish. Since then I've begun weightlifing and have gained almost 15 pounds over the course of one year which is incredible for me as I've struggled to gain weight my entire life. I really enjoy powerbuilding which is a breed of powerlifitng and bodybuilding which gives me the benefit of pulling heavier lifts for bench press, deadlift, and squat while also enjoying the "pump" from bodybuilding. I also enjoy running which is fantastic for my lungs and helps me to cough out any excess mucus. Overall, I thouroughly enjoy fitness which is why I continure to run each year.


Donating to the CF foundation will ensure that medical trials can continue to develop so that more drugs like Kalydeco and Orkambie can be made for people with all different types of mutations. 


Thanks for all the support!

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!

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.
