DARIEN, Conn. -- Logan McGovern , a Darien resident who was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis, has been named Team Boomer Athlete of the Month for the Boomer Esiason Foundation.
Team Boomer is a program that encourages people with cystic fibrosis to incorporate exercise into their everyday lives; provides an avenue for individual athletes in a variety of sports to raise money for cystic fibrosis; and offers assistance to grassroots athletic events looking for a cause to support.
Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disorder that affects more than 30,000 Americans. Although CF is not curable, the situation is not hopeless. Every day since the CF gene was discovered in 1989, the pace of CF research has accelerated. Today, 40 percent of the CF population is over the age of 18. And thanks to advances in medicine and technology, these adults are enjoying an improved quality of life.
The Boomer Esiason Foundation’s staff is made up of individuals with expertise in cystic fibrosis and program development, event planning and fundraising, marketing and communications, and management. The Board of Directors includes leaders in the business community who generously give of their time and resources in support of BEF’s critical mission.
