BENEFITING: Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
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).
In the 1950s, few children with cystic fibrosis lived to attend elementary school. Today, advances in research and medical treatments have further enhanced and extended life for children and adults with CF. Many people with the disease can now expect to live into their 30s.
Personally I know 2 families with kids who have CF and I'm willing to help them in any way I can. With our help there will be more researching funds and hopefully one day they will be able to find a cure to this rare disease.
I'm a certified running coach and will provide online coaching service for a donation. All donations are appreciated no matter what amount!
