Join us for the 5th annual “This Race Blows” 5K and 1 mile twilight run/walk to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation

Cystic fibrosis is a life-threatening genetic disease that causes mucus to build up and clog the lungs and pancreas.

The thick mucus causes bacteria to get stuck in the airways, which causes or swelling and infections that lead to irreversible lung damage and eventually death.
