Boo Running for Boomer


Running has become a extremely positive experience in my life. In the past year I have trained and completed 2 half marathons. Through running I have tested the strength of my mind and body. I achieved great confidence in setting and completing goals. My goal is to complete my first marathon and raise money for Cystic Fibrosis through the Boomer Esiason Foundation.

Cystic Fibrosis is a disease that has been very close to my heart my whole life. My older brother, 34, was diagnosed as a newborn. Today he lives with this disease but is not defined by it. He lives an outstanding life in NYC, with an amazing wife. Growing up I have seen him set goals and complete them. He is an extremely courageous man, who I admire with love.

In the 1950s, few children with cystic fibrosis lived to attend elementary school. Today, advances in research and medical treatments have further enhanced and extended life for children and adults with CF. Many people with the disease can now expect to live into their 30s, 40s and beyond. In the United States, approximately 30,000 individuals have CF; most are diagnosed by six months of age. Running the NYC marathon with Team Boomer allows me to inspire people and support my brother.

On November 4, 2012, I will run my first Marathon. Having the support and encouragement will make this run larger than a personal goal. I will be running for the fight against CF and I could not be more inspired.
