In honor of my 30th anniversary with this amazing Foundation, I am pushing myself to cycle 30 miles on September 12th as a member of the Pat Made Me Do It team.  Please consider riding with me and joining our team.  My goal is to grow the team to 30 cyclists because it's a great time to be outside and "go the distance" for the fight against CF. Joining the team is easy and there is no minimum amount and no registration fee this year so being together for a fun ride is easier than ever!

Cystic fibrosis is a rare, genetic disease found in about 30,000 people in the U.S. causing persistent lung infections and limiting the ability to breathe over time. Over my 30 year span of working for this amazing Foundation, I have come to know so many who are living with this disease including moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers --all struggling each day just to breathe and live normal, healthy lives. 

I am training to prepare and push myself to go the distance for my CF community.  I am so proud to be part of this community and this team.

People with CF still face an uphill battle despite amazing advancements that have transformed this disease from one that robbed children of their chance to survive elementary school, to one in which people with CF are living into their forties thanks to advances in CF research. Because of tremendous advancements in research, treatments, and care from support of countless donors, many people with CF are living long enough to realize their dreams of attending college, pursuing careers, getting married, and having kids.

While there has been significant progress in treating this disease, there is still no cure and too many lives are cut far too short. By participating in CF Cycle for Life, I ride to help add tomorrows to the lives of all people living with cystic fibrosis today. Please make a difference and support me by donating to my CF Cycle for Life fundraising campaign today! 

 

CF Cycle for Life is a unique event that empowers me, along with other cyclists across the nation to take action and help find a cure for cystic fibrosis...

Please help me reach my fundraising goal and donate an amount that is meaningful to you!
