Josh Ohlinger: Running for My Dad
Josh Ohlingers is participating and fundraising for the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation by running Charlotte's Thunder Road Marathon on Saturday, November 17, 2012! He is doing this in honor of my father, Terry, who is living with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis.
Please help him help those living with pulmonary fibrosis by participating and fundraising. He has committed to raising $100 for every mile he runs.
"My father is a funny, loving, caring, honorable man that I love immensely. He's a wonderful husband to my mother, an entertaining Papa to his grandkids, a proud father of three sons, a pillar in his community, and has wonderful taste in clothing. After all these years, my mom still picks out his clothes for him. We should all thank her for that. I want my daughter, Emma, to grow up knowing her Papa Ohlinger. He's the exact type of role model that I want her to emulate. This disease shouldn't prevent that. It's just wrong. That's why I want to raise money to find a cure."
