Hello everyone! September is Pulmonary Fibrosis Awareness Month and in doing so, from September 21st - September 25th, I will be embarking on a 137-mile journey from Campton, New Hampshire to the Canadian border for the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation in memory of my father, who courageously battled this disease for five years. My father was an avid walker for almost 3 decades, logging thousands of miles along the way. If not for this disease, he would've logged many more.
My means of transportation will be my feet and mountain bike, traveling North through New England towns such as North Woodstock, Franconia, Littleton, Lancaster, Colebrook, and Pittsburgh. Many hours of training and planning have been invested to bring awareness and recognition to those who are battling now and those who have cared for and are caring now for loved ones suffering from this incurable disease of the lungs.
I am asking for your help by donating 15 cents a mile for a total pledge of $20.55. Donations of less and more are also accepted and greatly appreciated. The goal is to raise $5,000 for the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation. Make your donation now by clicking the "Donate Now" button on this page!
In closing, I will only speak for myself when I say I've always taken breathing for granted, until recently. While I was training, gasping for air, the only emotion I felt was fear, only to take another breath.
I'd personally like to thank everyone who took the time to read this and I ask for your help and your support so that just maybe one day, a cure will be found and available for all who suffer from this disease.
