Hero Week Day 5 – Honoring Children with Cystic Fibrosis

Setting goals. That was Nat Gallen’s message early this AM as he spoke to 5:30AMers (and worked out with them too….along with dad, John) about Cystic Fibrosis and what he does to stay motivated and push past what others may see as limits due to having CF. In fact, while many told Nat that the idea of climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro was crazy and not a good idea, his family knew what he was capable of, knew his abilities, and knew that CF was not going to stand in the way of his accomplishing this goal. So, just a few years ago, Nat did just what he set out to do, by climbing 19,000 ft. Setting goals…..and seeing them through. Again, an example like yesterday of maybe having challenges, but NOT limitations. Outstanding example of getting things done!
