Friends and family,
In an effort to eliminate all evidence of being a collegiate defensive lineman, I've decided to run a marathon! However, I'm choosing to run the NYC Marathon because it provides me an incredible opportunity to raise money for a cause that is close to my heart.
I'm running on the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's Breath Team. The mission of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is to cure cystic fibrosis (CF) and to provide all people with the disease the opportunity to lead full, productive lives by funding research and drug development, promoting individualized treatment, and ensuring access to high-quality, specialized care.
CF is a chronic and potentially life-threatening illness that, today, has no cure. We've have come a long way in the search for a cure, but nothing could be possible without funding for research and drug discovery efforts.
Please support me in raising money for the CF Foundation where your donations will directly impact R&D efforts and, ultimately, patient's lives.
