266 Miles for Cystic Fibrosis:Running for a Cure

266 Miles for Cystic Fibrosis:Running for a Cure

My name is Bradley Poole, of Bradley Poole Health and Fitness, a CF Warrior. I’ll be running through every town in Cattaraugus County,NY within 7 days. Yes, it’s a 266 mile trek. My goal is to raise $100,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. I will be running between 38-42 miles a day starting Sunday, July 5th and ending Saturday, the 11th, 2020.

If you don’t know me, I live with a terminal illness called, Cystic Fibrosis. CF is a rare genetic disease that produces thick, sticky mucus within the lungs, digestive system and other organs in the body. Overtime, the mucus destroys the organs and causes organ failure. Most people with CF don’t live past 40 years of age. In order to have a chance at surviving past the life expectancy, I’m required to do two hours of breathing treatments a day, take 50-plus pills daily and exercise religiously. Even doing those things won’t guarantee me a free ticket to 40.

Today, I am 32 years young. I got to this point because of my fight and will to live. I’ve learned to turn my challenges into a warrior-like mentality. We were all given this gift of life and it’s something none of us should take for granted.

I’m doing this run for multiple reasons. The first, is to inspire the younger generation of CF Warriors and showing them what’s possible if you take good care of yourself. Second, to show all of you what is humanly possible when you focus and put your mind to something. Third, to inspire anyone who may be going through their own battle and getting them to see you can WIN. Lastly, to raise awareness about this disease and doing my best to help find us a cure!

The, 266 Mile Running for a Cure Team, would like you to participate through sponsorship, running with me, cheering me on and most importantly helping me fundraise to reach my $100,000 goal. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is the best story in medicine because of the relentless work every day to do whatever it takes to reach our ultimate goal of a cure for CF.

If you could kindly donate, as well as, SHARE this fundraising page, it would be GREATLY APPRECIATED! I want to thank you for your SUPPORT!

Have a blessed day!
