When it comes to promoting cystic fibrosis research and helping those with the disease, the Epic San Antonio office knows no limits.
Last Saturday, Joe Sanchez, client services coordinator; Marcus Huizar, client services coordinator; Mayra Serrato, clinical supervisor; and two friends represented Epic in the annual Cystic Fibrosis Tower Climb and Run.
The event benefits the Lone Star Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and anyone 10 years of age and older can participate. Plus, 90 percent of the money raised from the event goes directly to support local accredited care centers and research.
While the Epic team began the morning expecting a non-competitive adventure, the participants quickly realized they were actually signed up for the competitive run, which included a timed one-mile run around the Institute of Texan Cultures and then a 579-foot vertical climb up the 952 steps of the Tower of the Americas, one of San Antonio’s signature landmarks.
“We signed up for the non-competitive run but ended up participating in the competitive category,” said Marcus. “Everyone was tired, but we rocked it!”
You sure did, San Antonio!
