Our Great Strides Story

Welcome to the 3 Mile Minnies Team Page!

The 3 Mile Minnies is a team dedicated to Melissa Siik. Melissa is a wife and mother of four young children. She holds a Ph.D. in English Literature and Melissa also has cystic fibrosis.

Growing up, Melissa was told that her breathing difficulties and chronic cough were the result of asthma. It wasn’t until after the birth of her first child in 2008 that she was finally diagnosed with a rare form of cystic fibrosis.

Even though she may not “look sick” on the outside, those of us close to her know that Melissa struggles every day just to breathe. Her regimen of medications and breathing treatments consumes hours of her day everyday.

Melissa is a true warrior and an inspiration to us all. Somehow, she manages to demonstrate a pure grace throughout all the medicines, treatments, doctor’s appointments, multiple hospital stays and procedures. She even continues to pursue her favorite past time of running!

The money that the 3 Mile Minnies team raises will go directly to the CF foundation and will help fund research, treatments and supportive services for people battling cystic fibrosis, including Melissa.

If you would like to join our team and help support the approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis, click on the "Join our Team" button. From there you can make a donation and start your fundraising.

By becoming a member of our team and making a donation, you are joining a growing group of people committed to finding a cure for cystic fibrosis. Together, we are adding tomorrows to the lives of people living with CF by supporting the search for a cure.

Great Strides is a fun, family-friendly event that raises awareness and support for people with CF and their families.
