Hi! I assume you are viewing this gofundme because you already know who I am. However, if you don't my name is Alicia, I am 28 years old , an avid runner, dog mom, outdoorsWOman, and I have Cystic Fibrosis. If you aren't aware of what CF is or the details, give it a google; but remember don't believe everything you read on the internet! I will say, I am truly thankful/blessed that this disease has not negatively controlled my life. If anything it has positively changed it!
I have decided to join a virtual running challenge that supports CF and brings awareness to the condition. I had wanted to participate in person, but due to Covid 19 restrictions, no longer can. Soooo, I am givng it a whirl... I hope along the way you can donate/ sponsor me!
Below are the race expectations. You have 24 hours to run 24 miles. They are recommending 4 miles every 4 hours until you reach your goal. However, depending on the dollar amount I can raise, I may try to take my goal higher than the 24... we shall see.
I will keep an update on my social media of my progress and my distance during the 24 hours... with possible shoutouts if toure luck! 😚 (miles may be done on treadmill or outside or combo of the two depending on weather.)
If you would like to join the virtual race, its $5 entry fee and the link is below!
All donations go toward Rock CF Foundation; a foundation with the sole purpose of bringing awareness to the disease; along with some pretty cool races!
DISCLAIMER.. I have never been great at raising money in an organized way, so I figured it may be easier for me to "earn it." I also tend to not talk about my condition enough and its often forgotten about, but bringing awareness to this condition is something I feel strongly about! SO... IT'S GOING DOWN!!!!
Thanks everyone, Lish 🤘🏽
The Fall Bolt 24 is a 24 hour virtual fundraising run for Rock CF on November 28!
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.
