Pretty much on a whim, at the very last minute, I signed up to run the PF Chang Rock and Roll Mini-Marathon – a 5.8-mile trot through downtown Tempe on January 20.
I’m 63. So, it took me a lifetime to muster up the moxie to run my first-ever race.
I’m running in honor of my stepson, Jordan Sterling, who died four years ago of Cystic Fibrosis.
Jordan’s mom, family and close friends set up a foundation to advance scientific knowledge for treatment of people with CF. Because CF affects the lungs, among other organs, the more we learn about how to treat the symptoms of CF, the more we add to the database of what works and doesn’t work for many who struggle to breathe – regardless of whether they have CF or another health problem.
This is the link to the Jordan Sterling Foundation website http://jordansfoundation.org/index.html where you can learn about the foundation, donate online, or get an address to send a check. He also has a FB page under Jordan Sterling Foundation.
Thank you so much,
Terry Greene Sterling
