About

Join Team Boomer for the ninth-annual Run to Breathe and help them win the fight against cystic fibrosis, a genetic disease that attacks the lungs. Team Boomer works to encourage people with cystic fibrosis to live active, healthy lifestyles, and welcomes any athlete to join the team to raise funds and awareness for the cause.

In 1993, former NFL quarterback Boomer Esiason learned that his son Gunnar was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis (CF). Never ones to back down from a fight, he and his wife Cheryl founded the Boomer Esiason Foundation (BEF) and decided right then and there to fight to find a cure for CF. Boomer’s Cystic Fibrosis Run to Breathe (4M) brought to you by UnitedHealthcare helps support BEF’s fundraising and awareness efforts.

One dollar from each race entry will benefit the Boomer Esiason Foundation. Runners can also make an additional donation during registration or by visiting the Boomer Esiason Foundation web site. Registered runners can also support the Boomer Esiason Foundation by joining Team Boomer. Check back soon for more details on how to sign up. As a member of Team Boomer, you will receive benefits such as an official Team Boomer uniform and a personalized fundraising page. 

Live unofficial results are available during the race at liveresults.nyrr.org and in the NYRR app. Features include leaderboards, map tracking, and an individual runner search that can be shared on Facebook and Twitter. Tell your friends and family to follow your progress, and because the system works great on mobile devices, you can get unofficial results right after the race!
