This year we are excited to join Team PFF to help raise money and awareness through our TI 10 Mile and 10k event. Working with Team PFF, TI Event Services will be putting on a TI 10 Mile and 10k on May 21st at 9:30 am in Manchester, NH.  We are making a commitment to raise funds and awareness for the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation (PFF) because of our friend Bernie who has been diagnosed with this incurable disease.

We are not only dedicating our efforts to the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation because of Bernie, but also for the need to find a cure for pulmonary fibrosis. Pulmonary fibrosis (PF) is a condition in which the lung tissue becomes thickened, stiff, and scarred. As lung tissue becomes scarred and thicker, it is more difficult for the lungs to transfer oxygen into the bloodstream. As a result, the brain, heart, and other organs do not get the oxygen they need to function properly. When there is no known cause for the development of pulmonary fibrosis, the disease is called idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF.)

One recent study estimates IPF affects 1 out of 200 adults over the age of 65 in the US. Approximately 50,000 new cases are diagnosed each year and as many as 40,000 Americans die from IPF each year. The mission of the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation is to serve as the trusted resource for the pulmonary fibrosis (PF) community by raising awareness, providing disease education, and funding research. I’m asking for your support as I raise awareness and funds for the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation.

Our personal goal is to raise $1,000 and every dollar makes an impact. Please help us reach our goal by making a contribution here online or call the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation at 844.Talk PFF. I invite you to join me in making a difference in the lives of those affected with pulmonary fibrosis.
