Team Boomer Athlete of the Month

Hi! I’m Roger Wright…

I was morbidly obese for most of my life, weighing over 300 pounds from my late 30s until I turned 47. Ironically, even though I hated any form of exercise, especially running, I set a goal of running the 2009 Boston Marathon, hoping to lose 50 pounds and raise $3000 for CF research in honor of my then 9 year old niece Julia. In 10 months, I lost 113 pounds, ran Boston nonstop, and ended up raising $11,000 for CF. I realized that anything is possible and now use running as a tool to help others get themselves healthy. I also use marathons as a means to raise money to try and help Julia get healthy.
