There are currently 30,000 individuals living with Cystic Fibrosis in the United States alone and an additional 1,000 cases are diagnosed each year. Of those 30,000 people, 75% are diagnosed by the age of two.
Lost Lake Run began in 1992 to raise awareness and increase fundraising opportunities in Alaska for Cystic Fibrosis. Since the start of the race, over $2 million towards finding a cure and bettering the quality of life for those with Cystic Fibrosis has been donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. This race is not only a personal goal, but also a way to be a part of a community that is founded on giving back and raising awareness for a genetic disease that affects countless lives across the world.
Thank you for your time and I hope that you will consider donating to such an amazing cause!
