BENEFITING: Boomer Esiason Foundation
EVENT DATE: Nov 04, 2012
This year, for the 2012 New York City Marathon, the Boomer Esiason Foundation is thrilled to field an amazing team in the New York City Marathon! Any support you can give our 'BEF Marathoners' by sponsoring their valiant 26 mile run on behalf of the work of BEF is hugely appreciated. Meet our runners below and back your favorite one or you can contribute to the whole team just by clicking the "Donate" button to the right.
The money we raise will be used in the fight against Cystic Fibrosis. Since my son, Gunnar, was diagnosed with CF in 1993, I’ve met thousands of CF families from all walks of life. The majority of these people are simply trying to live normal lives while faced with a really tough set of circumstances. Their quiet courage and determination inspires me; it is for these families that we work day in and day out both to fund research toward a cure for CF and to offer direct support in the form of scholarships, grants and other programs.
One of the first lessons I learned in youth football was that winning requires all of the individual athletes on a team to come together, to cooperate and to support each other. It’s a lesson I think also applies to cystic fibrosis. So whether you are the parent of a newly diagnosed infant, are a young adult with CF ready to enter the working world, or are in your 40s or 50s and are successfully beating the CF odds, please consider this an invitation to join our team. Together, we will win the fight against CF.
