Our Great Strides Story
Join TEAM RUN FOR ROSES and help add tomorrows!
We will be thrilled to have you join Team Run for Rose! Team Run for Roses is working tirelessly to raise funds and awareness for the approximately 30,000 Americans living with cystic fibrosis. Since 2011, when Colleen ran from STL to NYC, 1,000 miles in 65 days, to spread awareness, share stories and raise funds for a cure for CF, we have been 'running' and 'cycling' and organizing other events to raise the necessary funds for research for that CURE!
It takes hours of treatments and handfuls of meds each day for those with CF to 'just breathe'. We walk / run for them because WE CAN. WILLYOU JOIN US?

Katie, the inspiration for Run for Roses, now 22, a graduate of Washington University in St. Louis, is currently employed by Life Crisis as a Crisis Intervention Specialist, working on suicide prevention hotlines, waiting to attend graduate school in social work in the fall, where she plans to specialize with kids with chronic illnesses. During her undergraduate years, Katie worked for Dance marathon & Children's Miracle Network all four years in varying capacities as a director and co-executive director. Her passion grew in wanting to help those kids who were facing chronic illnesses. Always ready for a challenge and living her life to the fullest, Katie spent her junior spring semester abroad in Copenhagen studying psychology and social services. She grew in spirit and passion, embracing the Danish lifestyle of hygge, which now defines her core. Katie's daily routine starts and ends with treatments: breathing, airway clearance and antibiotics to prepare her for her full day. Running and boxing are also incorporated into her busy schedules to facilitate good lung functioning.
What more could she do with the extra two hours each day?
That is where all this comes in! WITH YOUR SUPPORT, OU HELP GIVE THOSE WITH CF A HEALTHIER LIFE! Thank you for always supporting us and our efforts, for your donations and most importantly for being great friends, without whom we could not do this. Please continue your prayers for that healthier life and finally that CURE for CF!
