If Finn can do it so can you!

Hi Friends! 

It's that time of year again! Please join us as we particpate in this year's Cycle For Life. The event is not held at a physical location this year, but rather everyone can complete a ride on their own and virtually be together through the app suggested (see details in event information. Check back for details on where a couple of us will be safely biking a route together and join if you would like!

As many of you know I have been fortunate enough to start the newest CF medication at the begining of the year. Trikafta has completely changed my life, I am feeling healthier than I have felt in years and years. Even last summer, the thought of  completing this ride was so daunting, and I ended up not participating. Now, my lungs are strong, and my energy is renewed. Please join me in this years Cycle for Life to help me celebrate my new found health. Although my health is so much improved, Trikafta is not a cure, and there is still work to be done. Let's continue to support the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation until there is a life-saving medication for everyone, and even more importantly a total cure!

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 breath over time. Those living with this disease are moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons, friends, and co-workers -- all struggling each day just to breathe and live normal, healthy lives. We ride for them, and to help add tomorrows to the lives of all people living with cystic fibrosis today. Will you join us?

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, pursing careers, getting married, and having kids.

CF Cycle for Life is a unique event that empowers cyclists across the nation to take action and help in the fight against CF. Take your ride to the next level by joining CF Cycle for Life and help add tomorrows to the lives of those with cystic fibrosis today.
