Our Savior Lutheran School Kindergarten teacher, Trisha DePasquale, is running in the New York City Marathon on Sunday, November 7, 2021 to raise awareness and monies for cystic fibrosis. The students, faculty and staff at Our Savior Lutheran School in Plantation, Florida are helping Mrs. DePasquale get across that finish line and have selected Team Boomer as the recipient for their chapel offerings and have already raised $1,108.96, to date.
Team Boomer is a program of the Boomer Esiason Foundation (BEF), which contributes to helping people with cystic fibrosis live longer, healthier, and more fulfilling lives. There are 75 runners that are a part of Team Boomer's NYC Marathon team this year. Each team member is responsible for fundraising a set amount for their team page. All of the proceeds go towards scholarships and medical treatments for cystic fibrosis patients, and research for the disease. Mrs. DePasquale says, "it means so much to me that Our Savior Lutheran is helping my family fight the disease. I know I'll be feeling their prayers and hearing their voices in my head cheering me on while I'm running through the five boroughs of New York City in November."
