At Flywheel’s live studio located in the LSQ Studio, Flywheel held two rides with Boomer Esiason in order to raise money for his organization BEF. Our amazing instructor Emily Fayette led the two rides in the live studio where live and on-demand classes are filmed for Flywheels at-home bike.
What is the Boomer Esiason Foundation?
In 1993, NFL Quarterback, Boomer Esiason, learned that his son, Gunnar, was diagnosed with the incurable genetic disease, cystic fibrosis (CF). Cystic fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs, digestive system, and reproductive system of about 30,000 Americans by causing a thick build-up of mucus that leads to blockage, inflammation, and infection.
Never ones to back down from a fight, Boomer and his wife, Cheryl, founded BEF and decided then and there to fight for a cure and for the cystic fibrosis community.
What does BEF do?
BEF supports the CF community in the here and now in a number of ways, including financial aid programs and educational resources, as well as supporting research, CF centers, and lung transplant programs.

encourages people living with cystic fibrosis to incorporate fitness and nutrition into their treatment program, invites all interested to participate in a variety of marathons, bikes, and more to raise money and awareness for the CF community.
