Over the past six years Emily has cycled across the Canadian Rockies twice, and in 2016 she rode around the perimeter of Prince Edward Island, all in support of CF. This year, however, she has decided to take on a new endeavor.
Running the entire Bruce Trail i
n three weeks means running an average of a marathon per day on some of Canada’s most technical hiking trails. It won’t be easy, but I know that Sarah will be on my shoulder, pushing me along the way. And I know that anything ‘hard’ that I experience will be nothing in comparison to what she went through. I know that any extra breaths I take will help make a difference, thanks to donations from people like you, towards ground-breaking research, treatment, and care so that others with CF can take more than 30% of the breaths of a full life.
