6th Annual Violet Rippy 5k for Pulmonary Fibrosis
Sunday, July 17, 2016

 

Over 140,000 Americans have been diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis, and in most cases, there is no known cause for the disease. Join us Sunday, July 17, 2016 on the North Shore of Pittsburgh, PA as we fight against PF! 


In 2015, over 500 strong, walked or ran, to raise awareness and funds for the Coalition for Pulmonary Fibrosis in hopes of finding a cure for PF. With your help, over $150,000 has been raised from this event over the last five years. All proceeds from this event will go to the Dorothy P. & Richard P. Simmons Center for Interstitial Lung Disease at UPMC for research, education and awareness in hopes of finding a cure. Your kind support will allow the Simmons Center to continue to fund cutting-edge research. 

All of us together can make a difference.
