It's amazing what we can do when we come together.
Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic disease affecting 30,000 children and adults in this country. Over the past decade, the life expectancy of young people with Cystic Fibrosis has grown significantly and the quality of life has improved with new drug therapies and treatment. All the young people affected by this terrible disease dream of living a life full of good health and personal success stories.
The Hearts for Hope Foundation was started by the Finegan Family in Mansfield after Katherine and Fallon Finegan were diagnosed with CF as children. Fallon, unfortunately, lost her battle to CF in 2010. In 2011 we hosted the first Race for a Cure, and since then we have raised $58,000. Just about 450 participants came to show their support last year. We are excited for another successful year and hope that you will be a part of this great community event.
All proceeds from the event go to helping children, like Fallon and Katherine, and their families offset the financial burden that can come with the devastating disease. I hope you will support us and share our vision of a future where a cure and control of CF is a reality, not a just a dream.
The Hearts for Hope Foundation is run by an amazing group of ladies that made all of this possible for us, and this community is so generous to participate and give each year.
A huge THANK YOU to all those who have supported us the past 5 years. You all helped make the 2015 race the most successful yet. We are extremely grateful.
See you in 2016!
