Race for a Cure is an event benefitting the Hearts for Hope Foundation. 100% of the participant generated dollars go to this incredible foundation. Founded in 2009 to benefit those undergoing Cystic Fibrosis treatments, years after the Finegan family had their own daughters Katherine and Fallon diagnosed with CF, the H4H foundation has raised over 1 million dollars. Fallon lost her battle to CF in 2010. In 2011 we hosted the first Race for a Cure in Fallon’s memory, and since then we have raised $92,000 for the cause. Just about 400 participants came to show their support last year. We are excited for another successful year and hope that you will be a part of this great community event!
Where to begin with Fal? Athough she passed at the age of 16, all her family, friends, and acquaintances have stories about her. Starting with her signature rasping laugh that could be heard all over. She had a magnetic presence and made friends wherever she went. Never one to be the ‘sick kid’, nothing held her down. Her attitude and zest for life was contagious, and we still feel her presence at every Hearts for Hope event. She is our motivation every year to impact more lives and create more change. #HeresToYou
