Help Colin raise money

For participating in Big Peach Sizzler 10K and 5K

Total raised
$761.28 Goal: $1,000.00

I'm participating in the Big Peach Sizzler 10K & 5K on Labor Day and raising money to help children and adults living with cystic fibrosis enjoy longer, stronger lives.

ABOUT MILES FOR CYSTIC FIBROSIS

I am a 29 year old adult living with cystic fibrosis. I am running the Big Peach Sizzler 10K on September 3rd to raise money for Miles for Cystic Fibrosis. I have been an avid runner for 8 years. However, cystic fibrosis has made running very difficult. As a runner, I am used to measuring distances in miles. Over the last two years, I have seen my lung function decline to the point that I was exhausted after covering the distance of just a few floor tiles in a hospital room. Thankfully, I am feeling much better now and I am able to be myself again. This is largely due to a new medication called Symdeko. That medication, and the research that went into developing it, was paid for by donations from people like you.


Miles for Cystic Fibrosis does a lot more than just help fund research into new medications and a potential cure for CF. It also helps Georgia families pay their medical expenses as well as helping to pay for the expenses as helping CF individuals be more active.
