Support Miles for Cystic Fibrosis
Registration ends September 30th, 2018.
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.
Support longer, stronger lives for children and adults living with cystic fibrosis by setting up your fundraising page and asking your friends and family to donate to your campaign. You can earn rewards at the same time!

Free shuttle buses will run from the Buckhead Station Parking Lot to the Chamblee MARTA Station or the Brookhaven MARTA Station.
10K START STAGING
10K runners will be asked to line up according to projected pace per mile. Volunteers will be holding signs designating the location for each pace.
Strollers are welcome. Please line up according to your projected pace.
THE SIZZLER COURSE IS NOT DOG FRIENDLY! We love dogs, but they will not be allowed on the course. Well behaved dogs, accustomed to crowds, on non-retractable leashes are welcome to cheer for their people from the sidelines. They are also welcome to join the fun at the post-race festival.
Runners 8 years of age and older are welcome in the 5K. Runners 10 years of age and older are welcome in the 10K.
