BENEFITING: Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
ORGANIZER: Cystic Fibrosis
EVENT: 2018 Pittsburgh Marathon
EVENT DATE: May 06, 2018
We (Rachel and Maria) are running the Half Marathon and raising money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to honor our friend and fellow non-profit board member, Pepsi Umberger, who lives with Cystic Fibrosis. She inspires us with her always-positive attitude and her generosity with her time and talents. Please help us raise funds to find a cure for this disease!
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.
