This year we will again add one more event specifically called: "Clarke Family run for Pulmonary Fibrosis"- with opportunity to collect pledges for that if desired.
All Mayor's run entry fee will go to the causes listed above. Only pledge money collected by individual choice for that one chosen event will go to PF(Pulmonary Fibrosis). See the Back in 2018 tab for all details on offered events. And do READ Abigayle's Story: She is an Airdrie Aces Athlete that approached me to ask about adding an event last year called the Clarke Family Run for PF:
Here it is:
Why I wanted to make this race,
8 years ago my grandpa Chris passed away from a disease called Pulmonary Fibrosis. In the past 8 years, we have lost several family members. This last year my Auntie Cathy became sick, and died from Pulmonary Fibrosis. Shortly after my Auntie Shelley got sick with pulmonary fibrosis, we were all very scared. But she got a lung transplant in March. My family seemed very scared, and sad and I didn't quite understand what was going on. My mom explained everything but I still didn’t understand. I asked lots of questions and that helped me learn more. I found a lot of people do not know about Pulmonary Fibrosis.
I wanted to do something that I thought would help my family. I love to run, so I thought making a race for Pulmonary Fibrosis and raise money would help my family. My goal is to raise money and mostly awareness about this disease.
