The 65 Roses Augusta Team is an extension of an Atlanta based charity, Miles for Cystic Fibrosis, which supports organizations that benefit local families affected by Cystic Fibrosis, and scientific research aimed to control and cure this life shortening disease. Miles for Cystic Fibrosis began in 2006, when two pediatric pulmonologists, who are cystic fibrosis physicians from Atlanta had an idea to enable other runners/walkers to train for and dedicate their own endurance event to assist the CF community.
This 65 Roses Augusta Team was begun by a mother of three CF children who wanted to run for a reason. It is her vision to see that local CF patients and their families receive financial assistance needed, and to further research to bring health and longevity to their lives. Living thru the journey of expensive medications, multiple hospitalizations, and constant preventive care for her own children, drives her efforts to see that other CF families receive the much needed support. Please join her in this quest to reach out to those in need in our area.
