Meg (Registered Dietitian) and Jackie (Physical Therapist) are excited to run the 2020 NYC Half on behalf of the CFF Greater NY Chapter's Breathe Team.
The mission of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is to cure cystic fibrosis 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.
Submerged in CF care working at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Meg and Jackie are passionate about helping these kiddos out. Being washed up college lacrosse players, they maintain a deep understanding of proper nutrition, exercise, and teamwork. These 3 things happen to be huge components in the daily battle of CF as well! So! What better than to join the BREATHE TEAM and run 13.1 miles to support something they are so passionate about and to practice what they preach.
We hope that by race time in March, we will have successfully raised AT LEAST $4,000... if not more! Any contribution will help and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping us support finding the cure to CF.
