THE STORY:

Kim Shogren wrote -

In 1986, a made for TV movie called "Alex: The Life of a Child" depicted the story of Alexandra Deford, a little girl who was just eight years old when she died in 1980 following a battle against the debilitating effects of cystic fibrosis (CF), the number-one genetic killer of children. This movie brought this devastating disease into the homes and hearts of millions. I remember this movie and the impact it had on me as a child; Alex was only 3 years older than me. While no cures for cystic fibrosis are known, the management of CF has improved significantly over the past 70 years with infants today likely living well into adulthood. Recent advances in the treatment of cystic fibrosis allow individuals with the disease to live a fuller life less encumbered by their condition. I'm not going to lie. I started this journey selfishly to hike the Lost Lake course in Seward, Alaska for fun with friends and the safe transportation back to the trailhead start. While thinking about the funds my team needs to raise, I did a little research on CF. The medical community has made many advances with treatments for the disease, but there is still no cure. I can only imagine the lifelong difficulties and impact this disease poses on the affected individual and their family. Please help me and my team, Skull Crushers, raise the necessary funds not only to complete our journey, but to help the many families that are affected by CF every day. Your donation will go directly to the Lost Lake Run, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to raising money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, a nonprofit donor-supported organization that is seeking the means to cure and control Cystic Fibrosis (CF) and to improve the quality of life for those with the disease. Thank you in advance for your support. Sincerely, Kim Shogren and my team, Skull Crushers with Lara Shogren, Cara Church and Linda Chang
