10th Annual Violet Rippy 5k for Pulmonary Fibrosis
Saturday, July 18, 2020


Over 140,000 Americans have been diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis, and in most cases, there is no known cause for the disease. Join us Saturday, July 18, 2020 on the North Shore of Pittsburgh, PA as we fight against PF! 

In 2019, over 650 strong, walked or ran, to raise awareness and funds for the Dorothy P. & Richard P. Simmons Center for Interstitial Lung Disease in hopes of finding a cure for Pulmonary Fibrosis.  

With your kind support, over $325,000 has been raised from this event over the last nine years. Once again, all proceeds from this event will benefit the Simmons Center to continue their cutting-edge research, educate patients and their care givers, and bring awareness to this fatal disease.

All of us together can make a difference.
