Last week I challenged Julia to a fitness test. I wanted to know who could be the fastest to complete 500 sit-ups, and thus the Making it Matter Fitness Challenge was born. Tune in this week’s podcast not only to find out who won, but also to listen to Julia and I talk about why exercise is so important for people with cystic fibrosis as a form of air-way clearance.

Making it Matter this week is Michael Caruso Davis, who is 14 years old with cystic fibrosis. This past weekend he completed the New York City Half Marathon and raised over $25,000 for Team Boomer in the fight against CF. Congrats to Michael!
