The 10th annual
for Pulmonary Fibrosis
Presented by UPMC
Saturday, July 18, 2020
There are no words to express how thankful I am to all of you.
We are thrilled with the number of participants that held their own virtual walk or run and all those who gave so generously
during this difficult time.

All proceeds from the Violet Rippy 5K for PF benefit the
Dorothy P. & Richard P. Simmons Center for Interstitial Lung Disease.
Your kind support allows the Simmons Center to continue to fund
cutting-edge research and to support and educate patients,
families and caregivers.
We all share a common bond and passion, and we will never stop
fighting until we find a cure.
All of us together can make a difference.
Photos through the years!
If you are unable to attend the 5K Walk/Run, please consider making a donation to the Simmons Center in hopes that a treatment, or ultimately a cure for this disease can be found. The Simmons Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2001 thanks to the generosity of the Simmons family. The Dorothy P. and Richard P. Simmons Center for Interstitial Lung Disease provides: state-of-the-art care for people with interstitial lung disease (ILD) that is comprehensive and compassionate; international leadership in research on lung inflammation and fibrosis, promoting the translation of scientific discoveries into new treatments for patients with these lung disorders; a complete resource for the education of patients and their families regarding ILD and its impact on their lifestyle; and patient-friendly advice and support for people with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF).
