CF Cycle for Life - INO Cares

It was a beautiful morning! Although chilly and very windy, it was still a great day for a bike ride. We bundled up, broke out the spandex and jumped on our bicycles to participate in the Cystic Fibrosis Ride for Life at Herrington Harbour in North Beach, Maryland. Our November INO Cares project was a great success. We helped the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation raise over $40K and we had two newbie cyclists each finish a 20 and 40 mile race! Family and friends came to cheer on our riders and join us for a great after-party.

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is a fantastic organization that funds research in hopes of finding a cure to this fatal genetic disorder. Learn more about the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the nationwide Cycle For Life events.

  1. My father, who is no longer alive, was a biochemist and in that capacity developed a treatment for cystic fibrosis back in the 1960's. This drug is called Mucomyst. I do not know if it is still used for cystic fibrosis treatment today, but it is still used for other respiratory afflictions like asthma, and weirdly as an antidote for Tylenol overdose. When my grandmother was in the hospital many years ago she was actually prescribed Mucomyst to treat her breathing problem more than 30 years after her son-in-law's drug invention. Small and wonderful world!
