I will soon be honored by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation at a special event recognizing outstanding young professionals in my community. In accepting this distinction, I have committed to raise money to help the Foundation realize its mission of controlling and curing cystic fibrosis (CF).
Please help me meet my fundraising goal by making a donation. Your generous gift will be used efficiently and effectively to help support vital CF research, medical and education programs.

Cystic fibrosis is a devastating genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. More than ten million Americans are symptomless carriers of the defective CF gene. Advances continue to be made in finding a cure, but your help is needed now -- more than ever -- to help keep up the momentum of this life-saving research. Sixty years ago, children with CF usually did not live long enough to attend elementary school. Today, because of Foundation-supported research and care, the median survival age of people with CF is about 40. This is remarkable progress, but not good enough. We continue to lose precious lives to CF every day. To learn more about CF and the CF Foundation, visit www.cff.org. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those with cystic fibrosis. Thank you for supporting the mission of the CF Foundation!
Run 65 for CF Update: I am a little over the one week mark since I started running and I am happy to say I've run 27 miles out of my 65 mile goal. As I run into week 2, I hope to keep the momentum going and reach $2,000! Thank you SO much to everyone who has already donated so far. Every donation is greatly appreciated and helps make a difference!
Starting today, I am kicking-off and pledging to run 65 miles throughout the month of October in honor of those living with cystic fibrosis. I will be sharing updates as I progress through my 65 mile goal, and hope to help raise awareness and funds through each one of my miles so that one day CF stands for Cure Found.
