2011 ING NYC Marathon
Thanks for visiting my fudraising page! Please make a donation to this amazing cause as we fight CF one stride at a time!
This November I will be competing in the ING New York City Marathon with Team Boomer. Team Boomer is a group of athletes dedicated to increasing the quality of life of those impacted by cystic fibrosis (CF). As we help financially support research aimed at finding a cure, I would ask that you consider supporting us in this mission. A donation, no matter the size, makes a difference in the lives of those impacted by this terrible disease. Undoubtedly, with your help, our pursuit for a cure becomes even stronger.
Cystic fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. As respiratory and digestive infections developed as a result of CF can be quite serious, and often life threatening, the predicted median age of survival for a person with CF is in the mid-30s. When I participated in a recent 10-K to benefit the Boomer Esiason Foundation, I ran with many CF patients and was inspired by their courage and amazed at their enthusiasm. Fundraising with Team Boomer is my small way of helping to make sure more and more people living with CF experience all of what life has to offer far beyond their mid-30s.
Thank you for your time and generosity
