Liz Revilla fundraising for JOHN S PICKERING FOUNDATION dba Miles for Cystic Fibrosis
"Cystic Fibrosis is not a 5K or 10K disease. It’s a MARATHON disease, which is why we're running Miles for Cystic Fibrosis!"
Update: Since everyone has been so generous in helping me reach my goal, I thought I would start helping Chris out on his fundraising as well! Therefore, I have increased my fundraising goal to include the two of us. Keep those donations coming!!!
This will be the fifth year that Chris and I have been part of Miles for Cystic Fibrosis. Our goal this year is to raise at least $366 each (since it's a leap year!) - one for each day of the year that someone with CF has to fight this terrible disease. This cause is a very personal one for me, as many of you know, because I am a dietitian at a CF center. I have the privilege of working with kids and familes who battle with CF every day, and they are my inspiration to run this race! In fact, I was inspired to run my very first half marathon with Miles for Cystic Fibrosis by one of my adult patients. Although I told him that I hadn't run since they made us run the mile in high school, he basically told me "I have CF and I'm running the full marathon, so you can at least run the half!" Well, it's hard to argue with that, so I signed up and completed my first half marathon in 2008. This is a wonderful team of people running for a very worthy cause...please join us! *Walk*Run*Volunteer*Donate* www.milesforcysticfibrosis.org
