The 23rd annual Narberth Take a Breather Run & Walk will take place on Saturday April 28th at 9:00 am. This event is a local runners' favorite that raises money to help make wishes come true for children living with Cystic Fibrosis. This five-mile USATF certified race is a great warm-up for the Broad Street Run! If running five miles is not your speed, support the cause by joining the 1.5-mile Family Fun Walk or the "Kidz Fun Run" around the perimeter of the park for children ages 4 to 11.
The Narberth Take a Breather Run & Walk is an annual event from the Take a Breather Foundation located in Narberth. Now in its 23rd year, the event attracts close to 1000 participants of all ages.
Cystic Fibrosis (also known as "CF"), is an inherited, chronic disease that wreaks havoc on the lungs . and digestive system, and for which there is no cure. Since the Run's inception, over 200 Wishes have been fulfilled for those who receive care at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, St. Christopher's Hospital for Children, and other facilities.
All proceeds from the event go to the Take A Breather Foundation, a local organization with the mission of providing a respite in the form of a wish for children who have been touched by Cystic Fibrosis. The goal is to allow these children, along with their families, to "take a breather" from CF and focus on creating magical memories that will stay with them for a lifetime. These memories can strengthen their hearts and minds as they battle the psychological, emotional and financial turmoil that accompanies life with Cystic Fibrosis.
Also on the program is an awards ceremony, moon bounce, face painting, sponsor giveaways, music, a beer garden for runners and walkers, and more.
Runners can register online until 6pm, April 26, at the Narberth Community Room from 4:30 pm to 7pm on April 27, or on race day before 8:30am. The Run entry fee is $45, and the Walk is $30. This includes a free shirt while supplies last. The "Kidz Fun Run" has a $10 entry fee.
