Arctic Directory: Peak, Nabors to rally for CF

On August 23 Peak Oilfield Services and Nabors Alaska will be defending their title in the annual Lost Lake Breath of Life Run for Cystic Fibrosis.

Since its inception 15 years ago the race has raised over $600,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The nonprofit, donor-supported organization seeks to cure and control CF, an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States, and to improve the quality of life for those with the disease.

The race takes place every year in Seward, Alaska, covering approximately 15.75 miles cross-country at a peak elevation of 2,100 feet, using the U.S. Forest Service Trail through Lost Lake, Chugach National Park.

This is the second year Peak and Nabors have sponsored the event. The team was initially organized by Peggy Spittler, marketing director for Carlile Transportation, with the help of Mike O’Conner, president of Peak, and a close personal friend. Growing up Spittler’s family was greatly affected by CF, so like many participants the event signifies more than a foot race.

Registration is still open for the event if you’d like to put together a team or participate as an individual. Sponsorship and donations are also very much appreciated. If you make a donation online contact pspittler@carlile.biz if you’d like the Peak/Nabors team to get credit. Visit www.lostlakerun.org for more details.
