The 10th annual

Violet Rippy 5K

for Pulmonary Fibrosis 

 Saturday, July 18, 2020

It’s hard to believe that this event is in its 10th year...and it would not have happened without YOU!  

Join us on July 18, 2020 for the 10th annual Violet Rippy 5K Walk/Run for Pulmonary Fibrosis on the North Shore Riverfront, Pittsburgh, PA.

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.

See you on the 18th!
