Raised: $2,098.50

Goal: $4,500.00

Welcome to my Page

I am excited to announce that on September 19, 2021 I will be participating again in my local 'virtual' Cystic Fibrosis Cycle of Life event to raise funds for CF research and treatment. 
Last year I raised more than $4,000 to combat this devastating disease. My goal is to raise $4,500 and to ride 40 miles again.

Why do I support this cause? I am riding for our daughter and all other CF patients. We are grateful that two years ago an amazing CF drug was developed to help her and many other CF patients.  Unfortunately there are still too many who are not eligible for this miracle drug.

There continues to be significant progress in treating this disease, but there is still no cure and too many lives are cut far too short.

By participating in CF Cycle for Life, I will give it my all to help rid the world of a disease cutting so many lives short. I am taking my ride to the next level and helping add tomorrows to the lives of people living with cystic fibrosis today. Will you join me?

You can join me in the fight in one of two (or both) ways:
-Make a donation to my CF Cycle Fundraising campaign today! Even a small donation of $10 can make a big difference
-Register to ride with Team Cats 2 and help raise funds, you can ride with us or wherever you want.
 

CF Cycle for Life is a unique event that empowers me, along with other cyclists across the nation to take action and demonstrate their fight to help find a cure for cystic fibrosis. Consider joining our Team Cats 2 for a 'virtual ride' on September 19,2021

Please help me reach my fundraising goal and donate an amount that is meaningful to you! Thank you for your support, together we can make a difference and help make CF stand 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.
