Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!
I am ALIVE at 55 with cystic fibrosis due to the power of exercise. The life expectancy is 37 years old but - due to running and vigorous exercise - I have beaten the odds and am LIVING BREATHING SUCCEEDING.
I am currently listed for a double lung transplant due to the progression of my cystic fibrosis but plan on running with my oxygen tank for "Boomer's Cystic Fibrosis Run to Breathe"
Millions of people worldwide jog, bike, swim, and exercise... Some people jog to stay in shape...
I run to breathe... I run to live...
Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a devastating genetic disease that affects 30,000 children and young adults in the United States. Research and care supported by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is making a huge difference in extending the quality of life for those with CF. However, we continue to lose precious lives to CF every day. That's why your help is needed now more than ever to ensure that a cure is found sooner - rather than later.
BEF supports not only research but also has initiatives to promote exercise to the CF community and scholarships that help young CFers attend college and plan for successful futures as well as transplant assistance programs.
My personal goal is to raise $13,500. through Boomer's CF Run to Breathe 10k.
With your support "I Cannot Fail" and together "We can Cure CF"
Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
Pass it on! That's the game we're playing...
