Local News

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The Colton Underwood Legacy Foundation, along with Dayton Children’s Hospital and MusclePharm, hosted a fitness-focused fundraiser over the weekend.

The event was a way to support awareness of Cystic Fibrosis while celebrating a 5-year-old Dayton girl, Aubrey Inman, who has Cystic Fibrosis herself.

Aubrey was chosen to receive an AffloVest, which is a next-generation mobile airway clearance system that offers her the flexibility to do treatment without being connected to tubes or cords.

“With most of these vests, you have to be plugged in somewhere, and so you’re required to do these [treatments] a couple times a day for anywhere from a half an hour to a couple hours depending on your treatment,” said Kristy Greer, Child Life Specialist for Dayton Children’s Hospital. “With these AffloVests, they’re actually wireless, which allows the patient to take the vest wherever they’re going, so they don’t have to stop being a kid, they can just continue doing what they do best.”

As part of the fundraiser, personal trainer Connor Obrochta joined in for an afternoon of fitness fun including a five-mile bike ride, strength-building workout Bootcamp, and activities for younger children such as a teddy bear clinic, photo booth, and giant games.

Former NFL player Colton Underwood founded the Legacy Foundation in 2015 to support people living with Cystic Fibrosis.
