At Flywheel’s Live Studio, located in Lincoln Square, NYC, Flywheel was honored to produce two live rides with Boomer Esiason and Team Boomer. Our amazing instructor Emily Fayette led these rides – both of which can now be found in our On Demand library.
What is Team Boomer?
Team Boomer is the athletic division of the Boomer Esiason Foundation (BEF) that 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, cycling events, and more to raise money and awareness for the CF community.
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 cystic fibrosis 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.
