“This event caught our interest because two members of the club have family members battling cystic fibrosis,” said Casey Joseph Rosenthal, a second-year medical student who is club president and team captain. “I touched base with the Connecticut Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to learn more and discovered this event, like our medical school, is brand new. For these reasons, we selected this as our fall fundraiser.”
The club members cycled one of three routes ranging from 10-60 miles and was named “Best New Team” by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
In 2013, the Cystic Fibrosis Association’s Cycle for Life raised nearly $4 million to help support life-saving research, quality care and education programs.
