The New York Road Runners have opened registration for the Second Annual Boomer's Cystic Fibrosis Run to Breathe.
The 10K run-walk will be held July 21 in New York City's Central Park and is open to runners at all levels. Participation in this event will be capped, and we expect it to sell out.
Go to the New York Road Runners website to register and get official information on Boomer's CF Run to Breathe.
In an effort to ensure that Boomer's CF Run to Breathe is able to make a significant and meaningful contribution to the fight against cystic fibrosis, we encourage all participants to adopt a fundraising goal of $500 for the event.
Run to Breathe participants who raise at least $500 by July 1 will receive: an official Team Boomer t-shirt (manufactured by Under Armour); an official Team Boomer backpack; and an official Team Boomer sports wristband.
Join the fight, run for a cause and fundraise for a cure. For fundraising tips, sponsor sheets and directions on how to create a FirstGiving.com profile for online fundraising, please visit Team Boomer's Fundraising 101 page on our website.
