Email

David Kuhn may not be running for his life, but he is running for the lives of the 70,000 people worldwide who have cystic fibrosis.

Kuhn, who is blind, embarked on an 11,000-mile, 18-month run in May, raising money for and increasing awareness of the illness affecting his granddaughter, Kylie, 12.

“I’m 62. I want to extend my granddaughter’s lifespan as long as I can,” Kuhn said Sunday at Rollie Greeno Field in Jamestown.
