Pittsburgh Marathon 2020 - Run to Cure CF


About Our Event

Special thanks to our Platinum Sneaker Sponsor, Pro Bike + Run! 

Your alarm rings at 5 AM and all you can think about is staying in bed instead of getting up for your morning run. It may seem hard, but "hard" is all about perspective. Imagine if your 5 AM alarm was for pills, enzymes, breathing and vest treatments... 5 AM wake ups would be a matter of trying to survive - not trying to squeeze in a run before work. Running with Team CF is about supporting patients who wake up every day JUST to survive.

Our Run To Cure CF team in Pittsburgh is growing each year - as do our research efforts, drug and therapy developments, and progress we’ve made in the search for a cure to cystic fibrosis. Our community has celebrated many recent successes in research, but the lives of young people are still being cut far too short. Will you join us as we run to raise awareness and funds to search for a cure for all? Accept the challenge today to help add tomorrows to the lives of those living with CF. Consider registering, organizing a relay team, or making a donation to one of our dedicated teammates. We train hard to see that our team AND CF cross the finish line one day!
