About This Activity

7th Annual Violet Rippy 5k for Pulmonary Fibrosis - Presented by UPMC
Saturday, July 15, 2017

Over 140,000 Americans have been diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis, and in most cases, there is no known cause for the disease. Join us Saturday, July 15, 2017 on the North Shore of Pittsburgh, PA as we fight against PF!

In 2016, 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 $175,000 has been raised from this event over the last six 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.
