About Team Boomer

Team Boomer, the athletic division at the Boomer Esiason Foundation, was created to inspire people living with cystic fibrosis to incorporate fitness into their care routines and to provide a way for people to fundraise for BEF while staying active.

In 1993, former NFL quarterback Boomer Esiason and wife, Cheryl, learned that their son was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis (CF) - an incurable genetic disease that attacks the lungs. Never ones to back down from a fight, they founded the Boomer Esiason Foundation (BEF) and decided right then & there to fight for the CF community and for a cure.
