Join Team Boomer for the eighth-annual Run to Breathe and help them win the fight against cystic fibrosis, a genetic disease that attacks the lungs. Team Boomer works to encourage people with cystic fibrosis to live active, healthy life styles, and welcomes any athlete to join the team to raise funds and awareness for the cause. In 1993, former NFL quarterback Boomer Esiason learned that his son Gunnar was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis (CF). Never ones to back down from a fight, he and his wife Cheryl founded the Boomer Esiason Foundation (BEF) and decided right then and there to fight to find a cure for CF. Boomer’s Cystic Fibrosis Run to Breathe (4M) brought to you by UnitedHealthcare helps support BEF’s fundraising and awareness efforts.
