Our Team CF Story
We have taken on the challenge of participating in The Chicago Bank of America Marathon in support of Landon and The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. We will be hitting the pavement on October 8th with the rest of Team CF Superheros! We are willing to put in the miles, but need all of our amazing family/friends to help us reach our fundraising goal!
When we run, we are running: • Because Landon spends 2 hours a day connected to machines doing breathing treatments and an hour of this time wearing a vibrating vest that makes his body go numb. (When he is sick, an extra hour of treatments a day are added). • Because Landon takes enzyme pills when eating or drinking (approximately 20 pills a day) on top of other daily medications. • To help Landon achieve his dream of playing basketball for his daddy. Something he always talks about doing. • To help Landon be healthy enough to enjoy life as a kid; attend school daily, hang out with friends, participate in school activities, and earn a college degree. • To help Landon beat the average life expectance of early 40's. • Because 90% of the funds that we raise will go directly to research to help discover better treatments and overall a CURE for CF. • Because our hope is that one of the steps of our 26.2-mile journey will be the one that FUNDS the cure for cystic fibrosis.
With medical advancements made possible by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Landon has thus far been able to lead a healthy life with daily treatments and medications. Just like Landon’s battle with CF, we cannot do this alone. Just think, it could be your donation, no matter how big or small, that leads to the cure. We promise this will be the most important thing that you do today!
Thank you in advance for your support!
