Greg and Lauren Heritage Race 2010

Dear friends and family,

Last fall our friend Tim Savoca lost his father to Idiopathic Pulminary Fibrosis. Shortly after his passing, the Michael P Savoca Memorial Foundation was founded by his family and friends in honor of his memory. The charity is a not-for-profit entity that has been created to increase public awareness and raise funds to help support organizations that are dedicated to finding a cure and raising awareness of Pulmonary Fibrosis.

On September 11th, Lauren and I will be participating in the Long Grove Heritage 5K Run to support the foundation. No one knows what causes pulmonary fibrosis or why some people get it. "Idiopathic" means no cause can be found. The condition is believed to result from an inflammatory response to an unknown substance. It causes the lungs to become scarred and stiffened. This stiffening can worsen making it increasingly difficult to breathe.

Please consider joining us in our goal to help fight this terrible disease. No donation is too small. We appreciate your help and generosity.

Thank you,
Greg and Lauren
