Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
About 30,000 adults and children across the United States are affected by Cystic Fibrosis, a genetic disease in which mucus buildup in the digestive and respiratory tracts inhibits day-to-day functions such as eating, breathing and growth. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has made great strides in improving the lives of those affected by CF and working toward a cure.
The Gateway Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation will hold its second annual Cycle for Life bike ride on Saturday, June 16. The ride will begin in the parking lot of T.R. Hughes Ballpark in O’Fallon, Mo., and continue on three paths: one of 20 miles, one of 35 and one of 62. Rest stops, mechanics, and meals will be available along the way, and the ride will conclude with a celebration.
According to the press release, the success of last year's event is clear in that 90 percent of those participants have re-enrolled to ride this year.
Registration is available at gateway.cff.org/cycleforlife. The fee is $25, due on or before the event date.
