THE STORY:

Cystic Fibrosis Foundation wrote -


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 that it may seem hard, but "hard" is all about perspective. Imagine if 5 AM was about taking pills, enzymes, breathing treatments, and wearing a shaker vest... 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 the patients who get up at 5 AM 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 cystic fibrosis. 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 cystic fibrosis 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

Cystic fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects 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 cystic fibrosis lived to attend elementary school. Today, advances in research and medical treatments have further extended life for children and adults with CF. Many people with the disease can now expect to live into their 30s, 40s, and beyond.
