The WVU Medicine Stride 5K benefits the Richard Rosenbaum Memorial Fund, which provides medication and equipment to children with cystic fibrosis and other pulmonary problems.

Richard “Rick” Rosenbaum, who was treated for cystic fibrosis at WVU from birth, died at age 36 in 1995. He was a dedicated advocate for children’s programs associated with the hospital. Rick was a local businessman and good friend to many of the organizers of this event. His family created the fund.
