2019 Sonia Balliet Heidenreich Memorial Walk/Run Race Description



When: Saturday October 5, 10 am (registration at 9)


Where: Oak Grove Park, Fargo, ND



Sonia Balliet-Heidenreich was diagnosed with CF at five months of age. She spent her life in and out of doctors’ offices for both routine check-ups and prolonged intravenous doses of antibiotics to fight persistent lung infections. She spent nearly 4 hours a day taking medications, undergoing medical treatments and cleaning and preparing for the next round of treatments. In addition, she spent numerous nights/days traveling to clinics and hospitals where she could receive proper care at a location accredited for cystic fibrosis patients. Even while spending a great portion of her life fighting her own illness, she still spent her days helping others with CF through blogs, online support groups, over the phone, and through e-mail. Even during the last months of her life when the infections in her lungs were overwhelming her she still continued to support the CF community.

Sonia died on May 1, 2010, at 32 years of age, and it is because of her tremendous efforts to help better the lives of those living with CF, that we have dedicated an annual 5k run/walk to her, and continue her legacy of bettering the quality of life of those living with CF by raising funds for the CFA of ND.

This year we will be meeting at Oak Grove Park in Fargo for a fun, family-friendly atmosphere! We hope to see you there! Every registered participant receives a water bottle and a $5 Happy Joe's Buffet after the run! This year we would love to see a RAINBOW of shirts from past Sonia runs! 

Funds raised at this event are used to help individuals and families living with Cystic Fibrosis in North Dakota pay for life-saving medications, funds medical travels and offers college scholarships to youth with CF. Thank you for your generous support!
