Support Gunnar Esiason and Jerry Cahill in the Run to Breathe

Gunnar Esiason and Jerry Cahill

Our own Gunnar Esiason and Jerry Cahill – both living, breathing and succeeding with cystic fibrosis – will be running in the inaugural Boomer’s Cystic Fibrosis Run to Breathe.

Team Boomer is working closely with the New York Road Runners on this first-ever 10K, which will be held July 9 in Central Park.

This is the first Team Boomer event run by Gunnar, a 20-year-old junior at Boston College. Fifty-five-year-old Jerry, a longtime BEF volunteer, founded the Team Boomer program and is a veteran road runner. Jerry, who is on the waiting list for a double-lung transplant, will be wearing an oxygen tank as he runs.

To sponsor Gunnar and Jerry, and to show your support for Team Boomer and the cystic fibrosis community, please go to their fundraising pages on
