About Miles for Cystic Fibrosis


5b33a8f18d47f.jpg

M4CF was founded in 2007 by Dr Peter Scott, a pediatric pulmonologist whose practice involved caring for children living with cystic fibrosis.

Dr Scott, a marathon runner, likened the discipline & determination necessary to comply with the basic treatment regimens for CF with the dedication required to train for a distance running event. 

And so, the idea to raise funds to assist these individuals and their families through participation in running events was born.

Now, more than 10 years later, M4CF has grown to provide support through multiple channels. 

Emergency financial assistance to help local families meet basic living expenses is provided through grants to the CF Reaching Out Foundation. 

Regular physical activity has been shown to improve the overall quality of life for children and adults living with CF. M4CF started the BreatheStrong program in 2016 to support and encourage participation by individuals living with CF in a variety of healthy activities.

M4CF also supports research toward a cure through an annual grant to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Since 2011, The Big Peach Sizzler 10K has been the primary fundraiser for the work that M4CF does. The Big Peach Sizzler 5K makes it's debut in 2018.  All proceeds from both events go directly to the charity.
