The Fall Bolt 24 is a 24 hour virtual fundraising run for Rock CF on November 28!
24 miles in 24 hours- every 4 hours I will run 4 miles.
HI EVERYONE! I rarely post fundraisers but this one is near and dear to my heart. Rock CF is a foundation that is changing lives for those living with Cystic Fibrosis. CF is a diseases that impacts the lungs, pancreas, and other organs. It is genetic and more than 75% are diagnosed by the age of 2 years old. The median age of someone living with CF is 41 years old. As a Mom I can't imagine watching my child go through this. Many know my Father in Law passed away from pulmonary fibrosis and he lives with us for almost 2 years. Watching him slowly lose his ability to breathe was very sad and there was nothing anyone could do at that point.
This foundation is helping those with CF by raising awareness and fund research.
Generally they hold pretty big races throughout the year but due to Covid all their big races this year were cancelled.
SO- They came up with an idea. 24 miles in 24 hours. Every 4 hours I will run 4 miles- that includes the middle of the night on November 28th. (Yes, Mom I will be safe- miles can be done on the treadmill..but we will see )
Anything you can donate will be helpful- even if it is just a small amount.
I know I am thankful to be healthy in 2020 and that I have healthy kids as well- even though it has been a crazy year!
Thank you in advance!!
No, you don't have to run for 24 hours straight. Instead, you will run 4 miles every 4 hours, totaling up to 24 miles in 24 hours. I know some of you can bust 24 miles out in one go but we want everyone to participate in a 24 hour period!
You can run outside, inside on a treadmill, or a mixture of both. Be sure to post screenshots of your watch or phone when you are all done on our official Facebook Event Page & Strava Run Club page below! If posting on IG or anywhere else, use the hashtags #FallBolt24 & #letsrockcf.
All proceeds for the event go towards benefitting the Rock CF Foundation and our various programs.
