THE STORY:


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. 


Cystic fibrosis is a rare genetic disease affecting the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide). 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.
