Just Breathe and Run was created to raise money and awareness for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Our goal is to contribute funds to the research in finding a cure for Cystic Fibrosis.
Just Breathe and Run is a fundraiser barrel race raising money and awareness for Cystic Fibrosis and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Cystic Fibrosis, “CF”, is a genetic disorder that is invisible on first glance, but deadly to each patient who fights Cystic Fibrosis. This devastating life-shortening disease which is interchangeably known as “65 Roses”, is primarily known for affecting the respiratory and digestive system, while it impacts a large portion of the rest of the body. Just Breathe and Run was created by Emily Dodds and Regan Davis. Emily was inspired through her leadership program at school, as well as her family’s drive to raise awareness towards rare diseases. Regan’s youngest sister, Danika, fights Cystic Fibrosis. She has seen the emotional toll this disease has put on her family along with everyone affected; not to mention the physical toll that it has had on Danika. This has opened doors for her to help fund raise for Cystic Fibrosis for the past decade. With the help of Spring Krogue, the number one west coast barrel racing producer, and owner of Classic Barrel Racing; Just Breathe and Run is able to be what it has become today. The team of Just Breathe and Run, can’t wait to help make CF stand for ‘Cure Found’, rather than ‘Cystic Fibrosis’ and remind people to stop and smell the roses, live every day to the best of its ability.
