My Team CF Story
Yes - $10,000 goal!! Together we can reach that goal, I just know it!
Thank you for stopping by... and if you haven't seen our Ironmen for a Cure Facebook page, check it out here:
Kevin is excited to be not only running the Chicago Marathon for Team CF Superheros, but also competing in Ironman Wisconsin - his first full ironman distance triathlon!!
And Rebecca is stepping up this year and competing in her FIRST ever triathlon - along with Dean's Mom Erin, and two other friends Becky and Karen!
We both know our training is going to be difficult.. but it's nothing like what Dean and others living with CF go through all of their lives. It's a constant 'training routine', whether at home, in the office, or on the road on vacation... they pack all their gear, and do the work.
But scientists are getting closer to a cure - they really are! A few drugs are currently available that are helping many people live longer, fuller, and better lives. And we're confident that in our lifetime, we will hear that CF will stand for 'Cure Found'!
Please consider a donation... or please contact either one of us, or Jim or Erin Burns, if you have any fundraising ideas, or anything you could donate to our Chillin' and Grillin' for a Cure, which is currently scheduled for the end of September, and is always a great time - with food, contests, bouncy house and tons of other things for the kids, and some adult activities as well - - not to mention an amazing spread of gift baskets! We are always looking for sponsors or gift basket or cash donations for the event - so email me if you would like to be involved, or have ideas! firstname.lastname@example.org
There are approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. They are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends and co-workers who struggle every day just to breathe.
Real progress has been made in the search for a cure, but the lives of people with CF are still cut far too short. There still is no cure for this devastating disease, but together, we can help add tomorrows to the lives of people with cystic fibrosis. Will you join me?
You can help by making a donation to my fundraising campaign today!
