Adams Apples and Flying Pigs

Passion Event Name

Friends, I am running in the Flying Pig Marathon (the Half Marathon) on May 5th and will be collecting donations for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. 

When my cousin, Adam, was 2 weeks old it was discovered he had some markers for Cystic Fibrosis. After further testing he was diagnosed with CFTR Related Metabolic Syndrome or CRMS. This diagnosis is given to people who have gene mutations in the CF range but have inconclusive CF test results. For Adam this means that he needs to be closely monitored and he goes to the Lung Center at Women's & Children's Hospital every 6 months for evaluation and testing. The good news is that, so far, his test results have always come back negative and his health is that of a normal 7 year old. 

I run my race, so that he and so many others can be normal 7 year olds and enjoy life. Will you consider joining me in this effort to donate to this great cause?
