  • Maggie and I at the 2018 Event!
  • 2021 CFL Event

I am riding in my 8th consecutive Cycle for Life event this year in September. For the last several years, I have had the honor to ride for Maggie Healy on team Maggie's Milestones, and am very excited to announce that I will be doing the same this year! Right when I met Maggie in 2018, she was an instant inspiration to me! She is such a fighter, and I loved getting to spend a little bit of time with her before and after our 62 mile ride. My favorite quote from Maggie, that her mom Patty told me she says is, "I may have CF, but CF doesn't have me!" 

I first decided to ride in the Cycle for Life event in 2017 in memory of my childhood friend, Fallon Finegan, who lost her fight to CF when we were 16. I will keep riding for Fallon, Maggie, and all of those who continue to fight against CF for as long as I can, because I can. Let's add more tomorrows!

Please consider donating to this amazing Foundation to help fund the research that will ultimately prolong the lives  and quality of life for  those living with CF today, and eventually this research will find a cure. Any amount truly goes SO far. We will fight until CF stands for "Cure Found."

 

____


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.

Sixty years ago, most children with cystic fibrosis did not live long enough to attend elementary school, but thanks to Foundation-based research and care, many people with CF are living into their forties. 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!
