2014 Boston Marathon runner: Christina Ciccone

On Monday, April 21, thirty-five Southborough residents will don a bib a to run in this year’s Boston Marathon. Many will be raising funds for important causes in the process.

Every runner has a story, and from now until marathon day, I’ll feature as many as I can.

Today, I’m sharing news from Christina Ciccone who is running for Cystic Fibrosis. Here’s her story.

cystic_fibrosis_logoI can’t wait to run my first marathon in support of a charity very dear to my heart, The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation!  Our neighbor and close friend Sean has been battling this disease for decades, displaying tremendous courage all along.  If I can muster even a fraction of the strength displayed by Sean over the years, I will surely reach my goal of finishing the race as well as raising money for continued research and therapies for those affected by CF.

At last check, Christina had raised $8,185 towards her $10,000 goal. If you want to help, you can donate online here.
